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 someone  to fly, high…

step aside,  out of the way

let the other walk out proud…

 

 

you’d stop breathing

for a new life to begin…

when you love

you sacrifice…
