CHESS GAME / Poem by Maria Miraglia

CHESS GAME

Life as a chess game
the players two
your fate and you
Each with his own pieces
you can move differently
but at every move
waiting for a countermove
You can enjoy your game
and start with excitement
knowing it requires
passion and commitment
And can meditate deeply
on which the pawn or the knight
to move first
trying to foresee what will happen
At your pleasure
use the king or queen and
cunningly study all your strategies
but never can you predict
your opponent’s tactics or will
Sometimes
you have played well
some others
you could have done better
and keep waiting
for what it shall be
Come what may
but never believe
your victory or defeat
only depends on you
