Brethren

image

Once strangers bound by one
Through days
Acquaintance became a bond between teacher and pupil
Liege and knight

Love came between a form of kinship
Brotherhood
Even lovers of the sabre.
Their intensity is their heat in blaster
And hatred between.

One in jealousy of mastery
The other held back

Before the fall
After the winds of change
Absolute pride of self came
The other passive

Only in self sacrifices
Redemption through the force of one
One hope
One life
One to look after the twin suns
Of
Tatooine…
