CHECK_MATE

Written by Lucky Stephen Onyah



Sad irony wrestling oneself Seeking creative endeavors To extinguish burning desire Assault aimed to ruin others Cream of the crops garnered Set on a colossal damnation Lethal abysmal attempt foiled No retaliation, self-destruction The boiling steam burst open Concealed rage ruins itself so I take my cool watch in peace Will you tiptoe here and there? Losing sleep restlessly torn My good conscience is clear My joy intact and so my flow See providence run its course It's check mate before it starts Silence is the reply of nature A curse upon the causeless Shall never see the dawn of day. © 10/2021
