THE BATTLE

 

There is a Cherokee proverb that can lead to our success or our downfall

It tells of how there is a battle of two wolves inside us all.

 

One of those wolves is evil…an evil wolf who cries

for ego, anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority…and lies.

 

The other wolf is good…and throughout our life…in our maturity or our youth

cries out for joy, peace, love hope, humility, kindness empathy…and truth.

 

For every individual, every one of us,…the Cherokee concede

the wolf who wins the battle…is the wolf we choose to feed.

 

I believe our country is facing that same battle…

two wolves are vying for our heart…

I believe one wolf wants to bring us all together…

while the other wants to tear us all apart.

 

It’s time to cast our vote for the wolf we want to lead…

It’s time to look into our hearts and decide which wolf we’re going to feed.

 

I see this election as a battle for our soul, for our country…

for our democracy….

and now I sit and wait and hope…

a majority of people are feeding the same wolf as me.
