#5SF : Flame

The old man explained why so many people stop growing, never becoming who they truly are, who they are to become. “They see the flame ahead of them, consuming everything. They turn, and walk away, afraid of any hurt, any pain. They don’t understand what every artist, writer, painter, and creator knows. To see the truth of life, you must first walk through the fire, where the lies you’ve learned turn to ash, and your heart and soul become purified, and tempered, by the flame.”

Here’s my weekly attempt at Lillie McFerrin‘s flash fiction challenge, Five Sentence Fiction. This week, the prompt is Flame.

Please, go read all the other entries to this week’s Five Sentence Fiction. It’s amazing what creative people can do with just five sentences.
