The Guardian's Promise(By My Boyfriend) - Poem by Tricia Lemaster

'Where do I belong? 'The Guardian asks himself everyday. 'Do I have a place here? ' And as he asks these questions, he consults his inner demons. 'What do I do? ', 'How do I feel? ', 'How does she feel? ' Those are the questions he asks them. 'Respond with anger' they say. 'Respond with aggression! ' But the Guardian is tired of being mad, tired of the violence, tired of the tears he sheds when he's alone. So he says 'No! ' 'I won't listen to you anymore, I don't need you to control me! ' 'I have more than just ANGER: I have love, I have compassion, I have people who don't fear me! ' he responds. 'You need us' they say, 'you are nothing'. And with that, the Guardian yells 'BE DONE DEMONS, I DON'T REQUIRE YOUR GIFT OF ANGER AND HATE' After they are gone, the Guardian hefts his weapons and supplies, and returns to his life. He returns to you(Tricia Dildine)
