Two Wolves

This story is supposedly an old Indian legend, not my original idea, but I like the thought and wanted to write it into a poem. I hope you enjoy it.

Two Wolves

There are two wolves inside of us:
One black as darkest night,
The other is the opposite,
Its fur of purest white.
They fight in us for dominance
To gain the upper hand.
A constant battle rages as
Each tries to make a stand.
Which one is strongest and will win
The right to rule each deed?
The answer is so simple, friend:
Whichever one we feed!
So watch which wolf you feed each day
By what you take in you.
One wolf is fed by everything
You say and watch and do.
Make sure the wolf you’re feeding is
The one you want to win.
Make sure that you are feeding light
Instead of feeding sin.

Feel free to print, share or repost anything on this blog. I do ask that you let me know if you use one of my poems on your blog or at your church somehow. It might give me an idea of better ways to spread His words, which I am always looking to do. And of course, always keep the copyright symbol and my name with the poem so I continue to have the right to use them. You may not realize that if something is posted enough times without the copyright notice, I could lose the copyright and then someone else could conceivably file for a copyright and I would no longer be able to use my own poems! It has happened, so please make sure the (c) is always on the poem whenever you repost. Thanks!

God bless,
Denise McKenney
