Diagnosis

I just knew I was sick as can be

there had to be something seriously wrong with me.

Of all the people that ever lived in history

no one has ever been quite as sick as yours truly.

Turns out my only malady

is a case of anxiety.

Really?

I thought for sure I was a goner, see,

And this diagnosis doesn’t exactly

help me.

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.
