Life Is A Game Of Chess
Life Is A Game Of Chess
The world of war is like a chess board,
And victory is stored in a closed box in our mind so we fight on the floor.
But before the fight begins you must know your opponent and know your mission,
Because 64 box on the board represents a box of decisions.
One wrong move will leave you slipping in a bad position.
Time is short and the clock is ticking.
Enemy pawns moving forward, never backwards this is just the beginning,
And now both sides are fighting for center of attraction like basketball exhibition.
Life is a game of chess but the game of life ain't no competition.
We tried hard to be a star but don't give the King recognition.
Please listen, before battle I pray in my castle in total submission,
And the King touch me and said ,"The word resign is not written in your definition.
The reason warriors lose in battle because prayer is missing,
And having faith and doubt is like having your head splitting and blurred vision.
Fear becomes your psychiatric supervision and you're stuck in a prison,
And that's why knights who fight for the King becomes chicken.
Living a defeated life is not living,
And although the King has many disciples, not all Bishops are real Christians.
So don't be stuck on religious traditions nor false religions,
Because following a dead message is far worse than a man being lead into a car collision.
So Check! Move little King! Check! Move again little King!
Because the queen is the most powerful woman in the ring.
Being captured by her can cost you everything,
Because she'll make love to you with no strings attached but yet you get strangled in your own string.
That's what I called Checkmate little King!
I told the King how can I get to the other side?
The King said visualize yourself on the other side and think few moves ahead and analyze.
You might think you're in a losing battle in your mind,
But don't you stop, don't you run, don't you hide,
Because I will never leave your side so still fight til victory rise.
The pieces on the board are only pieces of my thoughts.
Design to show you how battle is fought.
Get your head in the book because my strategies are taught.
The enemy wants to hook you in his trap so don't be the one to get caught.
So let the weak say I am strong because only the strong finish last.
Anything can happen in the endgame but the game ain't over til one surpass.
Life is a game of chess and you must beat all odds.
I know all and see, that's why I am God.
No expert nor grandmaster can master what I've mastered.
Because their first move will only make them a master of their own disaster.
