SACRIFICE

disguise your torment

for someone else’s joy…

rein in your tears

for someone else’s smile…

you feign bravery

to allay another’s fear..,

you laugh out loud

to shield a muffled cry…

abandon your beliefs

for someone’s wish to flourish…

cease to exist

for the other to thrive…

you despair to scream

out loud!

silence is a must

your voice fading in a cloud…

fold your wings

for one to fly, high…

step aside or out and

the other shines through…

you’d stop breathing

for a new life to begin..,

You love?

you sacrifice…
