The lights they change.

The lights they change,
they flicker,
they go out.
The stop signs
come out
and I wait.
Looking to my left,
my right.
I’ve never been
the type to command
always hesitant
and still I am.

More just piles on,
I pick from the pile
a task and another
and all the lights
they flicker.
I think
if they go out
will the tasks stop?
Although no matter that thought
I hold on tighter
and I wait my turn
and when it’s time
I accelerate
the yellow takes claim
as I continue with caution
because I fear
what happens when the lights
go out permanently
Then the light goes red
and I stop again.
When it goes green
I sigh because breaks
are never long enough.

Thanks for reading.
