He enters, not exits
Stage left
To continue the song
To re-create in
Self reflection;
To grow and know
Times shifting
Bliss.

To know
That present, engulfed
In wonder and joy
Of all he has
That can’t be taken;
His values
His morals
His truth.

Bought in journey
Paid in respect
Given in kind
Received in humility
To those
From those
Knowing,
Accepting.

True self
Waits breaking
In waves of unknown
Oceanic expanse
Inside his soul
His heart;
His worth
In complex whole.

Adorned
In King’s play
The chessboard
Of life;
Piecing it together
Moving
Still
One square at a time.

No castling of King
Required
In building
Connection with self
And spirit
Before all else;
So that he can share
And serve
What he truly knows;

Himself.

His love within
Touched, explored
At board’s end
It moves
In turn
Surrounded
By guides, battling
In silent grace.

His queen
Roars inside
Flowing across
Tiles of light and dark.
His pawns
Respected
In their
Sacrifice for him.

His bishops, his knights
Keeping him safe
In this game,
Thriving in battle.
All courageous
In lessons
Forever growing,
Learning.

Success
Or failure
Matter not
On this board;
Of Life expanding
Opening up
Dripping
Pure

In grateful thanks
To all those pieces
Taking part;
Enjoying the challenge
Enduring the pain
Experiencing it whole
In divine revelation;
In love’s tender hold.

Check mate
Is no goal
In life
In love
In growth;
It’s the steps taken
On the journey
That matter so much more.

A story
Continues;
On this stage,
Playing
An unending song.
A game without end;
Check.
Inside.
