Checkmate

A poem that explores the dark side of human nature using the analogy of a game of chess.

Do you ever feel like life is similar to a game of chess in which the cunning always come out on top? I sure have! I often find myself trusting in the goodness of others never anticipating hidden motives or selfish ambitions.

Yet just as the queen has the most power in a game of chess, God’s wisdom has the most power in the game of life.

But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.

James 3:17
