Time Will Tell

  

Time will tell,
The secrets of the dark.
All unknown,
That’s lurking in the Heart.

Listen to the tick,
Of seconds on the Clock.
Grains of sand wait to fall,
Through the glass to leave their mark.

Earth hurls us through Space.
We don’t notice the speed.
But there are really no mysteries,
Each will learn what he needs

You may not know the reasons.
Capricious Fate shares no clue,
Of how events will unfold.
But trust, Time always shows you.

Synopsis
A character in a Stephen White novel makes the statement that "time will tell." It started me thinking about true and profound that simple statement is, even if it's a cliche. However, cliches are often based in truth.
A Word from the Writer
The second poem, after Brittle, I attempted. Still learning my craft, my voice, my style.
