Two minutes, that’s an eternity!
 
My hands quiver at the steering wheel
 
While stopped at a red traffic light
 
Raring to fly in my automobile…
 
Wanting to leave the present behind
 
And the past that's been cruel and unreal!
 
But I know a bright future beckons
 
Waiting for me to unravel and reveal!

In most traffic intersections, two minutes is the length of time that the red light stays on. However, most people are so impatient; for them, the interval seems a lot longer. For some, an eternity. Two minutes is FOREVER.

This is the fifth in my series of poems about the past...

This is a very moving poem. I interpret it as "Can't wait to see what the future holds. I've been waiting long enough." Is that right?
