Glory Abandoned


A vast word; as old as time.

Our nature; crucial to human existence

At least this was what it used to be.

Do I take you back to the earlier times of human existence, where the activities consisted of :

-hunting for feeding

-Mountain climbing to expand horizons

-running to escape predators

-engaging in physical combats to protect

-Long walks to change environment

-swimming for specific reasons like bathing or hunting

Or do I take you back to when horses had stronger spirits;

-the time of jousting, chariot racing ?

The competitive nature of man twisted it up a bit and voila,’We have sports!’

Do Your Homework.

Even while companions, limbs and lives were lost. The journey wasn’t started with nothing less than glory in mind.

Glory was the motto.

Glory was the ultimate payback.

Legends was what we became.

We only felt human when a competition arose.

Champions was what we were when victory called.

Glory abandoned for wealth is what I see now.
