Checkmate

Reason dies without faith

 men but a pawn

to move in set patterns

not seeing beyond

 

Logic and cogence

delude and mislead

 with vision and instinct

left wounded to bleed

 

Reason dies without faith

enslaved to the line

 paper to crumble

One voice to remind

 

Years add together

with hope on the run

belief when left wanting

all thoughts zero-sum

 

(The New Room: December, 2021)
