Nosey Neighbours and Hope


The Smiths just moved in and were greeted by nosey neighbours
They said hellos, answered some questions, all in playful banters
At first it was alright
Some remarks were trite
Then they realised it’s best to keep to themselves and not give answers


We’re nearly there and we have to keep going
Praise the Lord for managing to continue
Look, I could see a glint of assurance at the end
The overgrown garden with herbs is my witness
Hush, don’t feel guilty for not doing other things
As the leaves sway with the winds, be happy
Our sense of woe slowly disappearing
We are compelled to continue until the end
To give us some sort of satisfaction and hope
