Daily Prompt: Polish

He was too young to think much about that day

when he won his first medal that day.

He didn’t think about how many more he

would win over the years and how fun would

turn into being such a competitive person.

He sat in his room on a lazy Saturday day shining

his medals until they were all polished up and he could see

his reflection.

He knew now how proud his parents were that he was on a good

path and staying out of trouble these past years.

And, so he would be leaving for college and all his medals will be left alone

in his childhood bedroom until he sees them again.

He won’t be that little boy anymore and hopefully he will still be on the same

path as before just more mature.
