A Chess?


Life is like playing a chess.
Life is moving in a slow pace.
Unknowing of whats happening next.

    Did I win to loose everything
    or did I loose everything to win.
    These two lines of this amazing poem forced me to think who will be a winner in an atomic war? Or both will be losers! (Report) Reply

    Different perspectives of life we see around us, yet the life remains the same......Its our perspective that leads our way..........
    Among those numerous views about life, this metaphorical write is a lovely gem
    Indeed life is a chess, but are we the masters of our fate, or just pawns in hands of others? ...........we seek the answer............
    a well composed write dear (Report) Reply

    Each twist and turn comes in WITH surprises.
    It's just A calculations.
    Stalemate is also a result in Chess.
    With your analogy you can compare chess with a war, wrestling, tennis, badminton etc....
    Lovely poem (Report) Reply

    Spare a thought for the simple pawn
    who having moved can never go back
    To kill, be killed or to flower as a queen
    His destiny if he reaches the last rank
    And each king may share a common fate
    Something we call a very stale mate

    I really like this poem as the expression is very nice. Although, I am not sure that life is about winning or losing. We should try our best as nothing else we can do. As a human nobody is perfect though yes what matters is that we do not hurt others by purpose. You are a nice human being as I have been following your poetry so I know. Please, do not blame yourself for everything as it will only make things even more difficult. (Report) Reply

    Somehow we have to make the moves. It is important that in your chess game played with life`s situations, we are all seen around close.
    I enjoyed reading your poem reaching out to the situations as rivals with might. (Report) Reply

    A Beautiful poem comparing life to a game of chess! Success depends on how well we make our move and to some extent our luck! Whether a sucess or a failure, if one can celebrate life, no doubt, it in itself will be a success. Your jubilant spirit predominates in all your poems!

    I don't know why I had problems in locating your page and sending comments! Geetha, thanks for your sweet comments (Report) Reply

    Someone once calculated how many possible moves in a chess game... more than there are atoms in the universe! But even if we could know and use all, only a few moves would win most games.
    Perhaps life has more moves than chess and certainly more complicated ones that have more far reaching
    consequences. To win at chess one must be disciplined and discipline is one vital source to success in life. (Report) Reply

    In a war you lose even when you win. Please read my poem 'Peace Lesson from History' which has some sentiments of war and peace. Thank you.
    I congratulate you on reaching a high rank among poets in the World and in India. Keep maintaining high quality in your poems. Wish you all the best in your writing. (Report) Reply

    If the loss is for Dharma(for Truth and Justice) as Arjuna one can be proud of even after such a heavy loss or one can bereave as Gandhari, mother of Kauravas. Your poem is very good.I give 10/10 (Report) Reply
