Poem: Life Is Like A Chessboard

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

"Life Is Like A Chessboard" is a poem about how life is similar to a game of chess.

We start out like pawns searching for a castle to live in with our king or queen.

We make mistakes, stumbling along we lose our way.

God & the Devil watch as we pull ourselves out of checkmate to find our crown.

"Life is like a game of chess. ~ by Monique Medved"


Life Is Like A Chessboard

Life is one big game

where each and everyone of us

are pieces of a chessboard.

Like pawns

we go about our day,

awaiting a chariot

taking us further down the road,

where we live in our castle

as King and Queen

with our faithful knight guarding over us.

We run into checkmates,

causing us to stumble and lose our way,

with God and the Devil watching

as we pull ourselves back up,

determined to find our crown.


Life is like a chess board, it has both negatives and positives.
