I Resign

I Resign
by Roy dela Cruz

I've pushed pawns
Jumped like a knight
Even made connections
With towers and bishops

But no matter how I try
I just can't win the game
I blinked after I've moved
And found myself at the losing end

I have made sacrifices
One too many
But they always end up
Blunders that killed me

I can't go on always losing
I'm really tired of playing
And so I toppled my king
There's no sense in fighting
