Wise And Humble Soldier

To the end of the dark corner where all the darkness leaps

Hoping to jump out with excitement and capture the innocence

Each piece played as chess, for the king holds all the power

Move by move testing the strategic skills of each one

Luring each pawn to be the same, but one stands out as a soldier

A soldier  who knows the game better than what others haven't yet comprehended

Stuck in the darkness humble and yet alone of all the fears

Fears for which no one will understand but yet the soldier builds a strong armor

An armor used to protect itself around the rest of the game

Choosing to opt out of the game but yet can't make a permanent move until on all feet

Soon to become a leader, all with the time of patience and knowledge
