Friday Fiction: 100 Word Challenge

by Smitty

Some are known to history,
Some by neighbors known,
Some fall prey to gluttony,
Of food and things they own.

Youth is spent in pleasure’s chase,
While flesh can still support it,
And life can feel a treadmill race,
By pressure so distorted.

Love matures the youthful heart,
Binding the sympathizer,
Through trials that stop & start,
Hopefully leaving us wiser.

Joy is sought above all fame,
By those who wisdom grasp,
More precious than the richest game,
And likelier to last.

Fret’ee not the world’s allures,
And shiny objects proffered:
Pursue instead that which endures,
As though by Heaven offered.
