I’ll be brave.

I’ve learned to not question but to obey.

I’ll be brave.

Sands of time lost in doubt.

I’ll be brave.

One can only dream of freedom.

No slave who’s had a taste of freedom would return to captivity.

This is your chance to use me all you please.

Enjoy it while you can.

Because when I’m gone I’m not coming back.

I too can play games.

I was born a chess piece.

Raised a chess piece

Educated as a chess piece

So you want to teach me the game?

Fine!

They say one can act a fool and always learn something new.

I’ll watch but I’ll never say a word.

Have you ever seen a pawn in a game say “no master?”

No never.

A pawn must play its role.

I too will play my part.

So master move me and I shall go where you send me.

Something that never crossed your mind…

Every game comes to an end.

This too shall pass.

I too will have my chance.

We shall see who will become the pawn then who shall be master.

As the sand of time is forgotten

So am I in my earthly form.

Forget me not.

My time

Is near
