Poetry

My Fame is Yours

“All that the world provides,

all that glitters with high regard, 

every shine of the gold and gleam, 

every promise of rich reward, 

I will give you”, he says, “and more!”

”Reputation and popular vote,

acknowledgement and so much fame

and it will only cost your soul.

Such a minimal thing to give

for a standing among the greats!

In the prime of the best you are

Immortality now awaits!”

And I bow my head in prayer.

I know the truth and more.

The prime of the best in me

is the part of me that’s yours.

In the womb I was wonderfully made

not with glitter or golden façade

but with love and perfect repute

as a treasured child of God.
