Art Of Sacrifice - Poem by Maria Sudibyo

Whether love, whether life
Whether body, whether soul
Whether wealth, whether time
Real sacrifice is always to lose something important

Even though it hurts, starts to burn
Even though it pains, eager to break
Even though it shatters, ready to rip
Selfless sacrifice never want anything else in return

Through betrayal, through struggle
Through choices, through condition
Through burden, through wound
Blind sacrifice sometimes looked like a foolish attempt

Whether forced, whether willingly
Whether accepted, whether dejected
Whether praised, whether belittle
Worth sacrifice must be for the sake of someone

In exchange of wish, in gaining victory
To obtain dream, to remedy mistake
To fulfill promise, to protect happiness
Unforgiven sacrifice often comes from selfish reason
