Temporal Tactics

clockwork

Time does not respond to curse

Or even worse, disdain.

Daily events make it plain

Discontents are better dealt

With, as it’s felt to be,

Full of inconsistency.

Confrontations are dismaying

When regrets start preying

Over losses where conquests

Youth unlocked

Now finds age securely blocked.

One must sense the moves of fate.

Time can clearly demonstrate

Utilities to be adept.

Accept, accept.

A mind trained in compromise,

At gulping down raw surprise

In loss, can gloss

What no more lies at easy hand.

Time is ever in command.

Victory is not in never,

Time can cut, events sever.

Peace can lay in mere “not yet”,

Not yet and no regret.
