Now you see child, why dilemmas are necessary.
Why they are required for the growth of humanity.
They give humans a chance! To pick among the two.
Former or the latter, which truth is true.
Once there was a child,
To be a grown up he cried,
His dilemma was simple,
He grew up and regretted his life.
Once was a solider,
Hasty on the border,
He had to choose between brother or border.
He killed the former and chose the latter.
Once was a man, kind and gentle,
He was the priest of the highest temple,
He had to choose between purity and virtue.
He fed the child and let the stone die of hunger.
Once was a king, of a realm unknown,
The plague had his kingdom blown,
He had to choose desertion and death,
He left the kingdom to rot, and long he was gone.
The tales are many, the truth are few,
Truth is the morning, lies are the dew,
Now you have the chance, to choose between the two.
Former the or latter? Which one is true?
