I love to play chess,
and get all excited by just looking-
at the piece on the board.
An enraptured feeling of choosing paths,
for my pawns and my rooks,
and without strategies,
my pieces move forward,
but somehow along the way,
I always lose my knights-
not my Queen or Bishops,
and the opposition too lose underlings.
Funny, it hurts but a lesson-
I never seem to learn.
and shomehow, people think-
all chess players are geniuses,
until you think you are done.
The squares of black and white-
are just roads you have to choose,
to reach the destination of anywhere.
Even with calculations,
we can never say we know which square-
our piece will land,
or how many pawns we may lose.
just remember to guard and to guard-
your King. Your dignity.
