The Red Light and The Green Light

I have two intimate friends:
The red light
And
The green light.

The red light warns me
And cautions me
And finally commands,
“Stop!”

The green light inspires me
And encourages me
And finally whispers,
“Start!”

My red friend
Teaches me patience.
My green friend
Teaches me dynamism.

My red friend tells me
My life is precious.
My green friend tells me
My goal is precious.

My red friend
Perfects my will.
My green friend
Fulfils my dream.
