Life-A Game Of Chess - Poem by Kavitha Krishnamurthy

Life is a game of chess
With intricacy countless

Move the right coin at the right moment
And avoid any future lament

Be a pawn ready to accept risk
Not caring about the incurred crick

Be an elephant, slow and steady
To face any challenge be ready

Be the ideal planner-the horse
Then you will not encounter any sores

Be the quick executer the bishop
And then shun away any mishap

Be the queen so mighty and strong
And evade anything that is wrong

Be the king-the emperor
And make your life free of any terror

Play the chess of life with alertness and passion
Then success will always be there in your station
