Love or Hate

Jim and Tim are brothers. They do not get along.
They fought and argued everyday.
"Give it back," Jim shouted.
Jim grabbed his brother from behind
and wrestled him to the floor.
"What's going on up there?" their mother shouted.
Their father walked in and separated the boys.
"Will you boys ever stop fighting?"
The parents decided the boys needed a change of scenery.
The boys will spend a weekend with Grandpa.
Jim and Tim followed Grandpa to the car.
"Where are we going?" Jim asked Grandpa.
"We're going to 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 and the other lion was full of love.
Which lion do you think, will win this fight?"
Grandpa asked the boys.
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 inside of you.
Which one will you feed?"
