I read a poem by my fellow blogger friend Eva on her blog Game of Words. She has written a wonderful poem titled after her own blog. This poem below is my response and dedicated to her original poem Game of Words.(click to read)


If it’s just a game of words,

Then I must give it a try,

It’s like a challenge to me,

Gets me all mighty and high.


My pen is a sword,

And my poetry is a shield.

I never forget to bring my dreams along,

As I enter the battlefield.


There is no law in this game of words,

The only right is to choose,

The words you write in ink,

And you can’t dare to lose.


I am a master in this game of words,

Bravest among these selected few.

I will fight hard to get in,

And it will get ugly too.


The safety is off,

And my words will slay tonight.

It’s all just a game of words, baby,

And you wonder if I can put up a fight ?


The game is on,

And my sword is drawn to kill,

And on parchment ink shall be spilled,

It’s now just a battle of true skill.


– Advaita Inamdar


Like Eva many readers here may be Game of Thrones fans, so I would like to share a few quotes I was reminded of by George R.R. Martin by reading her poem and my own.


“A lord must learn that sometimes words can accomplish what swords cannot.”
― George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones


“Wind and words. We are only human, and the gods have fashioned us for love. That is our great glory, and our great tragedy.”
― George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones


I would rather spread love through my words than praise war and hatred. But alas, it is not my choice alone; but humanity as a whole that must embrace the idea of peace and love in our time. And I truly hope that it shall happen in my lifetime, that is all I would like to believe.


Spread the Love is my message to you all. – Your blogger friend, Advaita 🙂
