The Maniac Stoplight

I can see my life go flashing past me
Like a maniac stop light
Green to red at amazing speed
Red back to green
Faster – faster – faster
When I want to go
I am forced to stop
When I get comfortable stopped
Something forces me to go
Wondering who has control over that light
Wondering if it can be repaired
Or will I be stuck at this intersection
Not knowing what to do
Not going when I see green
Or maybe hitting the gas
When I see red
