American History X

Those who love me are like the laundry boy in American History X,

While I sit in the prison that I put myself in,

While I endure the consequences of my sin,

Folding underwear represents where we met,

In the most humbling of places,

In a matter of unforeseeable circumstances,

But even there you have brought in life,

Given me an ounce of joy,

Given me an ounce of warmth,

And somehow as my sentence completes,

I walk away knowing that you have guarded me

I walk away knowing of true grace and love
