Experiencing the Wait
A red light.
Color often means nothing in our lives, but when it comes to vehicles and laws, they suddenly mean everything.
The light stays red.
You’re there for a while, and you ponder the consequences if you go ahead. There’s no cars that’ll hit you, and you have some place to be. Just drive ahead a couple feet, all you have to do.
The light’s red for far too long.
What have you waited for? You’re out of time now. You’ve been done.
When the light changes, you speed as you can, but you’ve missed the event. Too late.
