On Steroids

It seems odd that so many people would risk compromising their health and basic standards of integrity by taking steroids and other drugs, all to enhance their performance in athletics or simply to have larger muscles.

These are desires of the ego, not of the soul, and the results are fleeting for glories of the moment are soon forgotten, but damaged health can't necessarily be restored at any price.

And anyone who doesn't believe athletic performances are but glories of the moment need only observe how few people recall "never to be forgotten" moments or games or other competitions.

Crowds move on and imaginations are captured elsewhere as new entertainment is created all the time.

Maturity and judgement or observing what has become of former athletic greats who abused their bodies will speak volumes to those who are wise enough to listen and to heed the lessons they contain.
