Are We There Yet?

by louis gander

Vacation! What a pleasure!
To relax, on beaches bask...
but seven blocks away from home,
my backseat driver asked,

Are we there yet?

Vacationing, we drive along -
just spending time together.
It seems that nothing goes our way,
and this time? Rainy weather!

Are we there yet?

Vacation, scenic landscapes.
Now is this all in vain?
Is this, the scenic way the best?
Should we have taken plane?

Are we there yet?

Vacation. What's the purpose -
the drive or destination?
And then distracted with my thoughts,
was handed a citation.

Are we there yet?

Oh, sometimes we are so confused
and so delirious -
living in a world of fun.
Are we too serious?

Are we there yet?

Vacation. Can we live one?
Restoring peace within...
Then broken from my deepest thoughts,
my youngest asks again,

Are we there yet?

So what's our destination
exposed behind each task?
Sweep, do we, sins under rug -
then have the shame to ask,

"Are we there yet?"

Once at our destination,
may judgment not be grave -
when God asks if we lived for us
or all to Jesus gave...

Are we there yet?
