Checkered Past

Jumped and thumped

Bumped and dumped

Across this board called life

Why must I fight

A game I don’t want to play


But here I am today

With dreams to be king

Isn’t that the thing

A dream to win

I do but sin

And am made false

At such cost

Waiting for that final loss

Checked again and again

Where do I begin

To leave such a predicament


When I am surrounded


Yet bounded

To head to the other side

Try and survive

This board

A want to be more

Than a drama queen

A king

I want to be…

Oh checkmate

I am far too late

Because of what is true

And what I was made into

That’s my ass

At last

My future is my Checkered Past
