Making All Things New

Sitting exposed for all to see
The patchwork facade in disarray 
Passers-by point and wonder
Can the structure hold?
Try as I might the fixes falter
No tricks of the trade affect
Renovation’s time has come
A re-do is the only real hope
To get to the vision of could be
I must further know what is
The facade must be pulled down
And the flaws exposed for all to see
The gawking will increase
The embarrassment of failure grows
But restoration and renewal
Require such a sacrifice
Such is the cost
If I am to be made new
