I felt the water clock hold sentence
over me. Dribbling out good, bad,
indifference and sincerity.
Its pendulum was silent, though
refreshing me with reminders like
a mirror reflecting the truth.
Every experience has weight; the
winning, losing, success and luck.
We balance them until it tips.
The results are unspoken for.
They appear and we accept.
battle each of us fights to the end.
