“Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.” -Kurt Vonnegut

a defender looking over
its pawns on the battle field
attack are at bay
harboring strategies
luring, taunting
the rook
a fortress
high in the sky
bold, strong
to be taken
always to
stay up in the end
and at the mist of
the battle the
rook will
be fortunate
to see the end
the rook the last to fall
from its resting place
the one to stick up
for your kingdom
the rook a trusting haven
to die with
