Brave and the Fox
In my tribe moons ago there was a young brave that took an injured fox
into his home. He loved it and cared for it and
it from its wounds.
As it was no more than a pup he became all to it. As it grew
became watchful and fearful as they felt sure it would
from their bounty.
But the brave never listened and gave the young pup the
of a mother/father .
Many spoke and wanted this young fox sent away. The
said bring me proof and it shall happen, but this they
not have. Their fear grew as did the pup and finally
tales were spun and the wisest then had but no choice
to outcast the fox .
The fox who now was strong and able, was scared and afraid
go from the boy. But the boy stroked his fur and said.....
"Do not fear if I fought for you and gained you more time,
life and the goodness within that I have installed in you, would
be in danger. I have taught you all that I can.
you in goodness and have given you all the knowledge
you need to go be with your fellow kind. I weep at your leaving
but, in my heart, in my mind you will be and you
always know the way back to my spirit and I you as I
breathed my life into you and that makes us one."
