A Pawn No More

A Pawn No More

“Every pawn is a potential queen.” ~James Mason
I will play the pawn 
For others no more.

Never again be used 
To settle a score.

Make a lover jealous
Or fill a void.

Valued only for how
I can be employed.

So easily manipulated,
Sacrificial and weak.

Passive accomplice
To the havoc they wreak.

Yet, somehow survived
To cross the board.

The endgame nears,
I’ve earned my reward.

Promoted to queen,
Most powerful piece.

My future my own,
Merely myself to please.
