Playing it safe

The light turned yellow
And in that split second
When my foot came off the pedal
I had to choose its destination–
Back to speed or
To the brake.

Right or left.

Go or stop.

A moment in time.

Hesitate or act.

And in that fraction of a second
I thought of her–
Her life gone
In a crash
In a fraction of a second.

I played it safe.

Under the amber light
I stopped.
