Feed the one !

Jim and Tim did not get along.
They fought and argued every single day.
"Give it back," Jim shouted.
Jim grabbed his brother from behind 
and wrestled him to the floor.
"What's going on in there?" their mother asked.
Their father walked in and separated the boys.
"Will you boys ever stop fighting?"
The two parents decided enough is enough.
The boys will spend a weekend with Grandpa.
Jim and Tim followed Grandpa to the car.
"Where are we going?" Jim asked Grandpa.
"Let's visit an animal sanctuary," Grandpa announced. 
They stopped near a large gated fence
where lions roamed in the field.
Grandpa sat both boys down
and proceeded to tell them a story.
"There are two lions that continue
to fight over everything.
One lion was full of anger, 
hate and resentment.
The other lion was full of
love, peace and compassion."
"Which lion do you think will
win this fight?" Grandpa asked them.
The two brothers looked at each other
and shook their heads. "We don't know."
"The one you feed." Grandpa replied.
Grandpa leaned over and
whispered to them.
"The same fight is going
on the inside of you."
"Which one will you feed?
