Red Light, Green Light

photo by Indah Maulida

I see the red light
reflected in windshield
and car flashing in sight
left a reddish flash behind

Some cannot wait and honk for the green light
but I appreciate its existence
for letting me go back to the past
reminiscing good times, bad times

I took my life for granted
my plans, my choices, my decisions
I lived my life carelessly and soon I realized,
I could be so much better than this

I sigh, the traffic light change to green
I should continue and move on
no matter what happen
regret cannot replace past action
