My Expressions

The one I feed

This is a student-submitted poem with extracts from “Two wolves” by Aung Thang. 

A fight going on inside me
One evil wolf, other as good as can be

Evil. Anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed
Coming off the bad breed

Arrogance, self-pity, guilt resentment
From what the evil side lent

Lies, false pride, inferiority
And of course superiority

And who could forget ego
Which started all the blow

Good. Empathy, generosity, truth, compassion
And benevolence, the chosen one

Kindness, joy, peace humility
Love, hope, serenity

Which one will win?
The one I feed..
