Sacrifice

image

Give-up your happiness,
For other’s sake,
For a better cause,
Be it love of the nation
Or, your children
To compromise is to sacrifice…

Ask a soldier,
War requires sacrifices,
Laughter of his children,
Warmth of his partner’s arms,
Ask a mother,
Many a treats she let go,
Just to see those dimples grow,
Many sleepless nights she suffered,
Just to ensure you slept in undeterred,
Derision, scorn and isolation,
Still we test their endurance,
To compromise is to sacrifice…

Putting our needs before their own,
Working their fingers to the bone,
Sacrifice….
Giving up that matters most
For the sake who matters most.
 A soldier’s wife,
And a mother now,
Seeing a martyr wrapped in flag,
I shudder no more,
I shudder no more…
For I now realize,
To compromise is to sacrifice…
