8 by 8, black and white, 
Sometimes wrong sometimes right, 
Depicts life as we know, where 
Quiet wins and losers fight.

Each step full of thoughts, 
Move ahead while joining the dots,
Make sure to check all ways, 
Because life is such, full of plots.

Smart always finds a way, 
Calm knows when to prey, 
Confident uses his charm to succeed,
But only a knight knows how to play. 

This place you see is a board, 
8 by 8 guarded by sword,
Think like a maestro to win, 
Life is chess, be it's lord.
