    My emotions are my pawns...
    I can let them block things up, impede forward progress, protect myself....
    or to attack, to feed off of their force in numbers, and let them set things up

    My decisions are my bishops...
    hanging around, sometimes changing the outcome of the whole thing
    strategically placing themselves to do the most harm or help

    My family is my rooks
    solid, stable and ready to go the distance for you, providing back-up
    giving structure to a sometimes un-organized clutter

    My mood swings are my knights
    tricky, unpredictable, potentially dangerous
    if not watched, can cause a lot of damage

    My soul is my king
    if it gets trapped or closed off, checkmate
    can't move in many directions fast, but always trying to be where it feels safe
    using the other players for protection and direction

    My queen is my queen
    you can still survive without her, but EVERYTHING is harder
    she makes moves that allow you to breathe a sigh of satisfaction
    she helps stabilize the other players positions
    with the queen involved, everything else feels natural
    she's powerful, beautiful, and my personal favorite component
    nothing feels right without her presence in my opinion
    she's the backbone and the building point of it all
    God bless the queens of all our lives.

    My KING is my soul
    He is the SEED that bless my soil
    and then become my ROOTS
    The roots of the tree that's bring forth
    BLESSED FRUITS
    My KING is my soul
    the SOUL that I need to BE FULL
    POWERFULL


    MORE LOVE TO KINGS AND QUEENS
    COME TOGETHER AS ONE


    Queen Risupnow
