Between me and life


I have made my move,

It’s your turn now, life,


Move the pieces as you want to;

Make your move,


I will think,


I will decide

What my next move should be,


Quit the game I will not…..

    Keep making your moves. Even if you face a check-mate .. It’s just a game 🙂

    🙂 a checkmate in the game of life could be very troublesome. that’s why one needs to make the right moves. but, of course, that comes with practice.

  13. Life, let us strike a chord
    Hold my hand
    Let me think
    Let me decide
    Hold my hand
    Let me read the opponent’s mind
    Let me predict his next move
    Hold my hand
    Let me build ‘our’ confidence levels
    Let me infuse optimism into ‘us’
    Hold my hand
    And just stay beside me
    Life, you and me – a team
