Winning at Life

I haven’t posted many poems here lately, mainly quotes, memes, and photos; so tonight I wanted to share a Sijo for last week’s challenge, Winning. This submission is late, so I guess I’m in last place. 🙂 Nevertheless, that’s better than not participating, isn’t it?


For so many honors, accolades, and wealth people strive on Earth:
How much of it lasts, beyond fleeting fifteen minutes of fame?
Winning in life means gaining what no one can take away.

I am not exactly winning at life. In fact, I am pretty much losing. Badly. But I hope I can “win” what counts: These include an enduring faith in Jesus, the love of those who are important to me, and eventually peace.
