Check-mate #BengaluruPoetryFestival

Bengaluru Poetry Festival

chess women's web

The army on both sides, the enemies and the allies;

Both looked on with hope.

One hoped for her to fail and fall flat on her face;

And the other rooting silently for her to succeed.

The lone queen of her destiny though battered;

Stumbling and faltering,

She finally arrived victorious giving her opponents a checkmate.
