The clock – Promote Yourself


We live our lives
on the face of a clock.
Constantly chasing every second,
riding every minute 
and sleeping with every hour.

A relentless motion
drives us forward.
Even if we are stumbling,
our heads along the ground
and chewing on our last spoonfuls
of true grit.

It is impossible to
For we are enslaved
by the ticking,
cemented on its surface,
beneath the tricky
of a beautiful opaque

But when clock finally stops,
silence becomes our fear,
stillness our death
and we long
for the ticking
of our home.  

My name is Anthony Keers and I live in the city of Manchester, England. Although writing has been a hobby since an early age, I haven’t been able to partake in creating writing for a while due to exams and high education. However, I do like to manage my short story and poetry blog called ‘Urban Life’, which can be found here:
