Christian Poetry/Flash Fiction

Like Everyone Else

Be like a penny.

Start out new and shiny.

Stand out…even though you look exactly like everyone else.

Everyone’s value remains the same. Your inner beauty relies on vanity.

There’s no power. Though you might think you have some over the crowd.

There’s no difference. You lie to yourself.


And yet…everyone accepts the lie.

Not your lie, of course.

Everyone is too busy focusing on themselves.

It’s the same lie everyone tells each other.

“I’m better.”

“I’m number one.”
