Reply to Thomas Bot’s ‘Ode to Regret’

i’ll not share in your woe
i hate to say i told you, sow!

the clouds could cry all day
the worse it can do is take man faraway

from woe, pain, the thought
that would bring him to naught.

to survive this stage,
do away with the rage.

first, you must embrace
your actions so you can erase

them one after the other
and put nothing on a brother.

then you must choose to live
like a naive

you are naive indeed
that is why you bleed

a broken clock would not
tick backwards no matter watt

live right now, right here
and not as a puppeteer.

Victor Oyedele
