Sacrifice - Poem by Amalei Masigla

unexpressed feelings yearning to let go
but to keep it that i do not want to do
for when it pressures inside me
it will just have to burst
and emotions may scatter with nowhere to go
when compromise sets in
you have to choose
and choosing will tell what it is to come
and at times your choices may pain others
or may pain you
then you have to sacrifice
for how many times I chose
got them hurt
hurt myself
either way i knew it was right
I may stand on the edge
for all I care as long as it matters
bears right
gives love
sheds light
in moments like this
I edify myself
to focus
to learn
for to sacrifice one's self
for your sake
other's sake
is an expression of love either way
