Of Love
Of Envy
Of Happiness
Of Sorrow
Of Misgivings
And forgiving

The Game of Chess
Played by life
Of choices
Of duress
Of fate
Of deeds
The pawns move
The kings groan
Where every move
Is monitored
None seem to win
Every one struggles
In vain, in pain

I too wait for
My share
Sometimes gleeful
Sometimes in despair!
