Mortality’s Game

Beneath starry skies
Eyes divine the lies
Of an unkind mind.

Inner audience
Applaud a Godliness,
Destructive and callous.

Yet race time’s clock
Like a fired glock.
Dodge Death and decay.

Goals are our souls
Filling the holes
Of mortality’s game.

Oh, and a little bit about me… I go by Kem and I write poems as a means of expressing myself and thoughts of the world I’m in. I also dabble in short stories and very short stories, too! If you want to see more of my work, check out or follow me on twitter @KEMwriting !


If you would like to have your work published in The Poetry Bar send your poem, a few words about yourself and the link to your blog and Instagram account to the e-mail
