The realization that revenge only makes you as bad as the person that hurt you, and that your actions will never be justified simply because they hurt you.

I made the wolf cry,

but I didn't sigh,

I left and wept alone.

I should be glad,

but I remain sad,

for I was the wolf all along.

Am I worse? Am I better?

These are the questions I'll ask today.

Because I made the wolf cry,

and it would be a lie,

to say I wasn't the monster that day.
