My Rebuilding - Poem by Ray Hansell

Caution everybody
I’m under re-construction
Or should I say
I’m being saved from destruction

It’s the same ole me
But some things I must change
There are some parts of me
That must be rearranged

Through the years some things
Have gotten out of focus
I know I need to fix them
Right now that is a must

I found some things to be
What they really weren’t
I must now pay attention
To make everything current

A couple of times my heart
Has been taken for a ride
As I traveled on the journey
I had no place to hide

I had already committed
After I said, the words I do
It just seemed from that point on
My happy days were few

So now I’m getting a retro fitting
I’m building up the walls
I want to be ready for anything
The next time I take a fall

The words I do will never
Be said in vain again
Because I know that I
Have been there and lost again

So I think I’ll try it
On my own for a while
I know I don’t need anyone
Just to wear a smile

Well I’m almost finished
With the re-construction job
To tell you the truth
It really wasn’t that hard
