It is VisDare Pic Challenge time from the wonderful Angela. 150 words or less.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Frozen in time, to the observers walking past the shop window they meant nothing.

The faceless ones , the worthless, the hollow, those who had excessive pride in their appearance, their qualities, their achievements all gained through pain of others.

Where did it get them in the end? Look at them now,  dressed as you or I, nothing special or out of the ordinary.

Why did they feel they were better than everyone, knew more, thought only of themselves.

Purely vanity and their self absorption allowed them to feel superior.

Vanity it was written in the 14th Century one of the 7 deadly sins.

They had no concept of sins, 7 or otherwise.

Five, frozen, five now cast into purgatory.

For those that pass by, what is their fate?
