tell us when to go
when to hold up
and when to turn
dictating our lives
like only our souls can
cautioning our foot on that pedal
in the same way we build walls around our hearts
as metal clashes on metal
hearts are broken
as lives are lost
or put in harm’s way
what is a driver without a stoplight?
if we cannot rely on even this guidance
what hope do we have in the rest of the world?
