Red Light

Here I am

waiting, hating

the red light.

Wishing I

coulda, shoulda

taken a right.

Traffic is

going not slowing

in front of me.

I am here

slow, a no-go

and I want to be.

So red light

will you help me out?

I need to

make a left turn right now.

I am so

tired of being stuck here –

I need you

to give me the all clear.

This one change

will all begin with you

If you will

just turn and let me through.

Please let me

be on my way

and leave all

this to yesterday.

Here I am

waiting, hating

the red light.

Wishing I

coulda, shoulda

taken a right.

  1. I have found that “taking the right turn” just to avoid the long wait sometimes causes the journey to be longer than if I would have just been a little patient and waited out the dreadful, hated red light.

  2. It sounds comical when you put it in writing like this, that a red light could cause us to hate! It’s true though, and it’s what it stands for that we hate – the holding back of our lives even for a few moments. We really want to get rid of everything that holds us back – EVERYTHING! 😀

  3. I don’t know about anybody else but I just feel better when I’m moving. Even if I’m moving in the wrong directions. Alas, the story of my life! 🙂
