An old Cherokee chief was teaching his grandson about life . . .
'A fight is going on inside me,' he said to the boy. 'It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.
One is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, self-doubt, and ego.
The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.
This same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person, too.'
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, 'Which wolf will win?'
The old chief simply replied, 'The one you feed.'

Raja’s Love Song
All the girls say they love me
all their mums say I’m lovely —
ever since I lived in the clouds.
Ever since you left me
I’ve been raining on the road
where you first said you loved me . . .
