I polished the award, something i had worked harder for than anything in my life. The Hugo Trophy. An award given to those who’ve achieved greatness in the realm of science fiction writing; A dream of mine that was spurred on by my voracious reading during my earlier years.

My husband tells me all the time that if he would become a millionaire then I could just stay at home, do what I love, not worry about working, and just be his trophy wife. Of all things, this is the greatest insult for someone like me who can’t stand still for a second. Stay at home? And do WHAT? My brain would die.

The best thing you thought you needed but is only an anchor for a memory of an event which contained an activity you excelled at. Shelves could be used for books instead.

amanda hated her life. She was fully aware that her husband considered her a trophy wife. Her father had pressured to marry as little more than a business transaction. But she hoped life would offer more.

The trophy doth live on
Tho Mrs Brophy’s gone
She bid adieu to husband John
And died of the atrophy
I’ve never won a trophy for anything. I “won” a participation plaque for being one of the yearbook editors in the 12th grade, but I don’t think that counts. I’ve never been on a sports team, so I’ve never been eligible for a trophy – that’s not fair, is it?

Who shall shine the dusty trophy
Now that gone is Mrs Brophy
It seems that husband John
Shall rejoin her before long
And there was no next. The world was like a void, empty and dark. I, the trophy for a lost battle. As I was walking I started to regret…

a trophy wife.
top shelf stuff.
this girl is good.
you can’t get enough.
you show her off.
and strut your stuff.
because when you’re with her
you suddenly feel tough.
she’s sweet and kind
clean and sexy
smart and fine
and you’ve seen nothing yet.
she’ll always be
the best thing you’ve found
and you’ll fight tooth and nail
just to keep her around

There’s a van gogh painting in my grandmothers bathroom with a vase the shape of a trophy. You get a trophy when you win the heisman. It’s a big trophy. Trophy bass r kewl.

trophy is a valued thing for most people who apreciate success over fun in life, well i say fuck it

Winning is everything to me, but also nothing. I find myself not caring to win, but if I do, I can’t help but brag and boast about it, even if it wasn’t my original intent. I know it’s terrible but… I don’t win much anymore. Not like I used to. Not like everyone else.

Dear John and Gladys Brophy
Left behind a dusty trophy
Wasn’t it so very sad
That in the end ’twas all they had
i have a trophy. i won it in a talent show. i played piano to win this trophy. i got first place. my brother has a lot of trophies. he plays baseball and football. you have to work hard for trophies. unless it’s just a participation trophy. those suck. they’re kind of a bummer. i also have some trophies for writing.
By Rachel on 07.18.2011
trophies are very fun they are shiny are colorful they make you feel good about yourself. i wonder why i have never won a trophy? because i suck at sports and im not smart that why. a trophy means you are good at something. pride. a trophy instills pride in the owner

“I won the trophy” the boy exclaimed excitedly.
He had been training for months and now he had finally succeeded. His little brown legs had propelled his roller skates forward towards the finish line faster than anyone else could get there. It had seemed as though he was gliding so fast he was but a blur. And now he was the victor. A small champion with brown hair and eyes.

I once was a dancer. I would go to competitions and win trophies. But were they really a prize of what Iearned? Or just cold hard plastic. I would hold the empty plastic in my hand and smile, just like all the other girls. Wondering if I could have done better. I never really liked competitions. IT seemed to ruin my love of dance. For people to judge my movement. MY movements. The girl were always so competitive. They would judge you without knowing you size their competition. Literally, size. I was a bigger dancer. Never quite had the dancereque body that most dancers had.

I don’t have any trophies. My dad used to keep his bowling trophies in the bookcase, where I would study them and run my fingers all over the smooth metal. I’m not really a competitor, however, so the most I have is ribbons from various school events where everyone walked away with a prize. They don’t mean anything. It would be nice to have a trophy of my own for something, noting my greatness.

Congratulations, you’ve won a trophy for winning a trophy! Let the vicious cycle commence, and all your dreams will come true. You’ll live in a penthouse apartment, drink from crystal champagne flutes and dance in space hotels near the Moon. You’ll be absurdly rich.

A trophy is an award for an accomplishment. It is typically a statue with your name engraved in it or the type of award you are recieving.
By Abby on 07.18.2011
I have many trophies that I earned in my life. MY biggest accomplishment however that I earned one is in chess. The chess trophy is golden, and as big as my arm. It stands over me, shadowing my figure in its golden light and spectacle.

Trophy wife. Winning. What you get when you’ve excelled in something. Prize. Excel. Trophy. Trophy. atrophy. Trophy boys, trophy wives. Trophy life.
By Shayna on 07.18.2011
The winner takes the trophy. Is it because he wins it? Or is it because he wants it? The trophy stands golden, shining. It captivates the eye. Gold. Gain it.
By FaridaEzzat on 07.18.2011
Trophies huh. You get them for doing stuff well. Its a,ways a competition though which sucks. You should get trophies for every day stuff like eating and sleeping and pooping. Especially pooping.
By Nick on 07.18.2011
I am not your prize. Not your first place. I am a human being and I deserve to be treated that way, I always did. I’m not on your shelf anymore. I’m no longer a part of your pride. I’m no trophy.
By Haley on 07.18.2011
the one who won i won the one who will win the prize yes we all have a prive in our minds eyes we won we are the ones who will bring this home to our families and s see the smiles that brings joy. GOlden

i think the biggest trophy one can earn in life is love. and you have to make big efforts to obtain in, and to keep it. because this trophy called love only goes to the ones who deserve it, and leaves once they stop deserving it.
By loli on 07.18.2011
The ultimate trophy:
Love. You won the game of life, and you earned love.
By Lili on 07.18.2011
I’ve never won a trophy, I don’t strive to win one, either. A bit too shiny, too self-centered, too look-at-me and my golden ears. But maybe that’s just jealousy. I would like to think that if I ever win one, it would collect dust in a closet and not gleam with polish and beg for praise.
By Tamara on 07.18.2011
I don’t want to write about a trophy. Maybe because trophies are usually associated with sporting events, and I’m not sporty. Maybe because they encourage unfavourable comparison with a past long-gone, a misty-eyed longing for a younger, better, version of yourself.
By story URL on 07.18.2011
I think of winning. Of Taylor Swift’s song “Long Live.” A trophy is a prize few can win. It means you’ve worked to earn something. That you did something right for a change. Something others couldn’t.

today was the day. the day. the day he had been waiting for for years. years. the day he had been training for. this was the day. no going back. no regrets. this was it. and what was special about this day. the day he had been training for years. the trophy. the trophy made it important.

It was a day like no other, the trophy gleamed in the sunlight. James stood on the podium grinning at the cheering crowds. But something didn’t seem right. It was all just a little out of focus. He looked around and the more he tried to get his bearings, the more things faded away… He wouldn’t let this moment go! Try as he might, he had to wake up.
By Lucas on 07.18.2011
Sometimes I feel like a trophy. Like something you win but then put on a shelf and forget about. When you move, you take it with you and find it a new shelf, but it never really means anything to you again. In the beginning, it’s what all your thoughts were about. You were so proud of it. Proud of me. Where has that gone?
By Amy URL on 07.18.2011
I never got a trophy as a kid. I guess it’s because I never really got to do anything. I was not remotely coordinated and I had epilepsy, so I was left alone with my books. I guess I became pretty smart because of it. that’s my reward. I guess it’s a trophy of sorts.
By Melissa on 07.18.2011
to win a trophy is something she had always dreamed of. To see something shining on her wall, something she could be proud of. something that would make her parents finally see that she was worth something too. It would be about her for a change. And maybe, just maybe, the trophy wouldn’t be the only thing shining. Maybe she would shine for once too. Just once. And that would be okay by her.
