One cruel act

One cruel act.

Once I was a foolish man
At a very foolish time
I acted from pure selfishness
And committed such a crime
I was grandad to a little fellow
Who was all of three years old
I was his only father figure
And he valued me like gold.

But me, I turned my back on him
When he really needed me
I travelled far across the world
His needs I did not see
I broke his little heart, did I
Because I was so cruel
And now on looking back on this
I do regret it all.

For this young lad still wears the scars
Of this thing that I once did
He acts so very insecure
Can’t keep his feelings hid
Nine years later, he still cries
In case he’s left alone
He thinks that we’ll all go away
And leave him on his own.

I really did not think of this
The harm that could be done
To a little fellows heart
I was his moon and sun
And yet I turned my back on him
And now I say to you
Think real hard on what’s ahead
Before these acts you do.

I know

You left me amid a pack of wolves,
snarling, baring their teeth...
closing in on me.
I know they'll tear me apart.

As the night grows darker, colder,
I hear their menacing howls,
and I realize I'm all alone.

I know tonight's my last night.

I search all around for you,
call to you for help,
all the while knowing you won't come.

I know you can't.

But, I fight back
I fight the wolves with all I've got,
and I emerged the winner.

Now, I know I'll live another night.

“Grandfather, grandfather! At school today,
a classmate hit me with a book.
The teacher made him stay inside
for recess. She said he was a good boy 
who did a bad thing. What did she mean?”

“Grandson, I will tell you a story.
All men have inside of them two wolves.
One wolf is all that is good in the world:
the bravery of warriors,
kindness toward others,
compassion for our elders.
the strength of our mothers.

The other wolf is all that is bad in the world:
the hatred of one man for another
murder and theft among the clan
envy, sorrow, regret---
all that is evil among man.”

“And Grandfather, which wolf wins?
The one that you feed, grandson.
The one that you feed.”
