The Prideful

Same time
When lonesomeness decided to consume everything
Along with that cheerful disposition 
Letting it permeate throughout the tunnels of my consciousness

Like a knight in battle I waved the white flag
Took off the steel enveloping my fragile soul
Surrendered my being to the rightful

I was a chess piece 
Used to protect the honored 
I moved as expected for who it was fighting this war
Drained to the very last until I could no longer do

Injured watching from the sidelines as it finally surfaced
What it was you were truly fighting for
