Sacrifice

Sacrifice

What is it that drives people to it?

Love

Devotion

Hope

But also

Greed

Hatred

For those who are sacrificed are not only those who are willing

Still, it remains the greatest gift

For in the end, when you have nothing more to give

Money

Fame

Power

Glory

Life is all that remains.

So precious it becomes at that moment before it is lost

We struggles for it

To grasp onto it with both hands

To never let it go

But when you press another onto that life we are given

And slip slowly away from it

Pressing that other to the light as you descend into the darkness

You begin to understand the value

Of the things you hold so dear

So then take heart

For many have sacrificed what they have

So that you may have the choice

Of light or dark.

So then remember, remember, remember

Those who laid cobblestones for you to tread on

So that you may hew a path for those that follow you.

X&V,

K.D.S.
