Life Is A Game Of Chess

Rating: 5.0

Life is a game of Chess
We, are the Pawns
We fight to reach the top, taking one step at a time only to be redundant
While the Knight stops us in our tracks
Similar to the Government
And the Rook is always several steps ahead, like a Politician
The Bishop is the one who watches from the side, hoping to witness you fall behind
Incriminating anyone who stands in his way
Just like Officers today
The King stands between the Rook and Knight, just like the President
He manipulates them into believing his
own illusions,
While they continue protecting his wrong doings
The Queen is the most deceiving, she can do anything
As she stands beside the King
She’s sneaky and her one move is accurate
Anyone who stands in her way becomes a target
She abuses her position
She’s what we call a united nation
Life is a game of Chess

Very interesting thoughts on life, comparing it to a chess game is brilliant! Using the chess pieces to depict the different people standing in the way of our freedom and preventing us from getting ahead in life. Very true to life, your poem parallels it quite a bit! Great poem! Thank you for sharing it. RoseAnn
