when a light turns red

Stoplight.

There it is and here you are.
Stopped.
If you’re in the right lane and want to turn right,
you can go before the light turns green………….
Anything else leaves you in a standstill.

Nowhere to go, but there.
To sit.
To wait.
To listen to music, maybe.

If you desire to rush through it –
an accident.
It’ll come and you might be gone.

A stoplight stops.
Reminds you to sit.
Listen.
Pay attention.

Red signals so many things.
Blood, love, stop…

How do you know?
You don’t.
So you wait.
For green – which means,
life, go….

You have to sit.
You have to wait for the red light to turn green.
