Chess

Poem

Chess

You are afraid.

What do you expect?

You try to play life

like a game of chess.

You dream like a queen

powering in all directions.

Such foolish notions.

No matter your place, your label,

queen or pawn, the universe

controls the next move.

Life is built on uncertainty.

We have no choice but

to live with it.
