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.
