People always look at me.
No matter where I am,
they always stare at me.
I hear them talk about me,
they criticize my attire.
When I wear green, they smile at me,
and when I wear red, they get angry.
But I can't escape!
Not because I don't have legs,
because I save people's lives.
by letting them know when it's safe for them to continue their path.
