Stop Signs

In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ ~ I Peter 1: 6-7


Green light

Yellow light

Red light


Wake up each morning ready for the day

Get the kids up

Everyone wants to stay

Laid in bed

Not ready to be fed

Slowing you down

Trying to rush

Get in the car

More of a fuss

All of the drivers

Weaving in and out

Traffic could not be worse

And you're ready to shout

Late for a meeting

Coffee spilled down your clothes

School nurse just called

Babies sick, and time is tick ticking away

Who to call?

I can't deal with this all

Rent is late, bills to be paid

Oh how my life is seeming to fade

Feeling this pain in my chest

Is it real or am I just a mess?

I stress and I stress

But for what purpose

In a job that I hate

Wanting to fornicate

Trying to stay focused

But with the way I feel

I can't keep it all straight

Feeling like I'm just bait

Unimportant to all

Feeling pain in my chest

Is this stress?

Pain, is it real?

Something that I truly feel?

Or something I created

Just to learn

My spirit aches so it can learn

Trials and tribulations take their turns

Over and over I return

Experiencing emotions I cannot explain

Oh God I'm tired of this train!

Waiting and waiting for it to end

So that I can comprehend

Why me, oh me?

Is this happening?

The long way home so I can release

Tension from my brain

Green light

Yellow light

Red light


Oh I'm tired of coming to a halt

My realization that pain is not real

Something in my brain that makes me feel

A sense of connection

Feelings in this world

Oh I feel like I'm in a twirl

Of emotions

Led by spirit and by flesh

Oh let my spirit come to rest

Halt my pain so I can regain

A sense of direction

Pain is a reflection

An experience to understand

And comprehend

Feelings I need to mend

Green light

Yellow light

Red light
