A row of marbled faces, eerily looking the same,
Vulnerably standing, with no fear or shame.
The King is calm and quiet, simple in his speed.
Short on time and energy, filled with anger and greed.
The Queen beside him controlling, no where she can’t go,
She moves with mighty vengeance, a smooth ebb and flow.
The Bishop is almighty; hoping none of them will fall.
Crossing back and forth, giving his blessings to them all.
The Rook is our tower, hidden, way off to the side.
It’s there our King can castle if he needs somewhere to hide.
I watch the game play out before me, strategy and endurance.
With a rhythmic to and fro, the battle is a bloody dance.
Protect the King at all costs, that is our passionate creed.
Give to him our faithfulness and he will return our need.
Everyone of us is special, we all play a key role to winning.
He admires and will provide for us, he tells us at the beginning.
When the knight stood in front of me, with his steel sword drawn.
I realized right then and there, all I was is just a pawn.
