Sacrifice - Poem by Adetimilehin Inioluwa

I thought my joy was my life
And did all to keep it alive
Even if it costs much to revive
But there is more to life
Than feeding my Cyclops affinity
It’s more about maintaining balance
Trying to counter the inevitable
Walking against wild odds
Forgings strong alliances
It’s more like letting go
To achieve the greater good
It’s more about mutual joy
More about our common ground
It’s not about the pebble in the sand
But about the pebble population
That’s the cost of unity
That’s the boundary of holocaust
That’s the price we have to pay
To save the legacy of our kind
That’s our little service
Trading our un-intruded comfort
For the love of our neighbors
That’s our sacrifice
