Author’s Note: I have two versions of this writing – the other one was already posted here.

Minutes are passing
It’s your turn, what now?
Show me so I would know
Which pawn should I use
Will I take the bait?
Or will it be a check?
Now it’s a check
Protect the king
Hide behind the rook
It’s the queen’s move
But a knight’s mistake
Bishop’s avenging
But there’s nowhere to go
Is it checkmate? The end?
I failed and lost
I struggled in this battle
This battle of waiting

Taste Of My Liberty

I was beaten and covered with bruises
I fought hard to overcome this crisis
I was defeated. Slowly, I faded
My liberty, I thought I have tasted

I cried until the tears were all dried up
I fell, I stumbled. I tried to get up
But all was in vain so I let it be
Just wait and soon I’ll taste my liberty

And so I wait. With hope, I have waited
Wounds have healed and the battle has ended
Now I see light, a glimpse of victory
And sweet will be the taste of my liberty
