Beep, beep, your life is a one way street

You’ll crash, burn,wait your turn for the light whose color is

Ever changing

Stop, yield, pedestrians in the crosswalk, construction on the road

Maneuver through this while carrying your own heavy load

There’s traffic, two-way streets, highways and turnpikes

Bridges to cross where souls have walked

All waiting for the LIGHT to turn bright green

No other color red and yellow has the same effect it seems

Take the next exit left, go under twenty-five miles per hour

Put on your parking brake , pay the meter hour by hour

Before the light turns green again make a choice

Do you go the way everyone takes or do you bear your own cross?

Is there a way around the madness

A shortcut to your ultimate destination

Where is a GPS when I navigate through my life’s frustrations?

I have settled on directions

Directions I’ve been given, a world where love is not always free

when given

I follow these instructions but find my own way

Nearly come to a dead end

If only I’d follow these directions I know I’d find my way home
