Checkmate By Ranjan Kundu

In a game of Chess,
Between Life and The Man of Imagination,
And, a life-full living being at the center,
And, the reflection of the dance Of the soul in its eyes.
Sun Vs Moon,
Day Vs Night,
Light Vs Darkness,
Truth Vs Illusion,
Hope Vs Despair,
Humane Vs Moneyist,
Love Vs Lust,
Realization Vs Revenge,
Salvation Vs Damnation.

In a game of Chess,
Between Life and The Man of Imagination,
And, a life-full living being at the centre,
And, the reflection of the dance
Of the soul in it’s eyes.

The Man of Imagination
Checkmates Life,
In the maze of Life,
In the form of a Chessboard.
