SACRIFICE

hide your pain

for someone else’s joy

rein your tears

for someone else’s smile…

you feign bravery

to allay another’s fear

you laugh out loud

to shield a muffled cry…

repress your choices

to grant the other’s wish

abandon your beliefs

and let the other thrive…

you despair to scream

out loud!

silence is a must

your voice fading in a cloud…

fold your wings

for the other to fly, high

step aside or out and

the other shines through…

you’d stop breathing,

let the other live

dying is a risk

for a new life to begin…

You love, hence you sacrifice.

Go…

the way beckons

take the stride

do come forth

leave the hive.

 

halfway you go

doubt befalls you

keep the footstep

upfront, up ahead.

 

however it ends

shove any regret

bask in the pride

you’ve refused to hide.

‘Of The Sea’

There were four

That became two

‘Of the sea’

Just  you and me.

When the world shook

An arm kept me safe

‘Of the sea’

Did it for me.

 

Kept apart by miles and years

The flow of blood, fervent

That bridge between prevails

Unbroken, forever unburnt.

My love, respect and awe

Never lost, be in the know

I miss the big bro

Of the sea, so I speak.
