Chess, a Game or Quest...
I look at the squares and stare at the pieces,
awaiting the hand from the unknown
that guides us all through life like
the pieces on the chess board.
I dream of a game where I, alone, control
all the pieces and the eventual outcomes..
I dream at controlling my own life but also
those that impact me..
Kings, Queens, Knights, Rooks all movement’s
controlled by me. I, alone, control life and death.
I steal control from the unknown and move
all pieces as I see fit, even to termination
The purpose of the game is not victory.
The purpose is control. The need for
certainty in our own lives, the need to
command our own destiny drives every move.
Chess is not a game, it is a quest for infinity.
A journey that starts with the finite but then
absorbs the vastness of space in a specific
objective, the conquest of life’s great mystery.
The endeavor to dominate isn’t about victory,
it’s about survival, the ability to endure,
then endure again, in perpetuity. Life
extended one victory at a time.
