The Grey Chess Piece

The Grey Chess Piece

A Poem by Jamie Starlight

Black and white black and white

Squares stretching systematically


Soldiers stand on squares staring each other down

Their war echoes forever


I am here, I don’t comprehend

In the midst of this struggle


I am painted grey

I have no side


They clash, black vs. white

Move by move


Their battle is a game

Relived endlessly


I screech for peace

This is mindless violence


My cries are faint

Their war chants are louder


I stand here, bleeding grey

I have no side   


They’ll never end this

It’ll just go on and on...
