Keeper

By Asherll Othabanye

Aggression, hate, anger

I will embrace you like my friends

I will keep you close to my heart

I will wield you how I choose

I drew from you inspiration

I worked with you in the progression

I allowed you to discipline my faults

I called upon you when I was weak

My perfect ball of survival

Thou hast seen me through

Thou hast crossed my many rivers

Thou hast been welcoming

Though you bring out the best in me

I will keep you from doing the worst in me.

You brought down giants

Now you surrender to me

As a brother, you shall be my keeper

And I will undoubtedly be yours

My tool and my extension

I am glad I chose to understand you
