The Armour Bearer

BeckyTP formally known as Rebecca Moraa is a student at Moi University Main Campus Kenya. My passion in poetry grew in primary school.

From the mountain peaks I praise you

Oh! Son of the soil, my hero...

Endless are the songs I've composed

Just in praise and glory of you

The clan's armour bearer.

To the rising sun I've sent my prayers

Coz that's what our clan believes in;

Beside my eating table I've poured libations

Just in favour of you, that your ancestors

Be merciful to you when it's tough.

Dear son, it won't be easy

But I will guide you all the way

I'll give up everything for your success

Because our armour bearers don't fail

They fight harder; and if they fall-

The stand back up and start over again.

This is the start of a new journey

One that all of us have been waiting for

The only place envied by the sons around

It's your turn son, be the man I raised

Make it worth all my praise songs.

Dive, run, jump, ride and fight hard enough

Let no one tell you it's worthless

I've trained you long enough for this

Your time has come to deliver

Show them its worth a try

Yes son; it's the start;
