This traffic light inside my head
Is always green and never red.
My thoughts, my dreams, and all my fears
They all speed past my listening ears.
I close my eyes to block it out
But inside my head they rush about.
I take a breath to slow it down
But upon my face appears a frown.
My heart beats fast
But my breathing slows.
I breathe in life
Then out it goes.
My body’s numb
Yet I feel my tears.
I’ve lost count of the days
The months and the years.
This traffic light
Inside my head…..
I’m scared of the day
When it turns red.
