There is such a thing as a sacrifice,

Suffeting for someone else,

Or something else.

I’m not sure if sacrifice,

Is worth the pain,

Worth the price paid.

But it’s often, not my choice.

Sacrifice is required, 

For those stuck in shadow,

Of every day hardship.

We must offer up ourselves, 

And heed the call,

We can’t let the shadows win. 

For there will be a time when to sacrifice,

Is worth the cost.

Grains of sand filling up an hourglass,

Counting grain by grain, 

For a jubilant day, 

When the price will have been paid.

The hourglass explodes,

The sands of time flow everywhere.

Shards of broken glass, 

Jabbing those who wonder to its beach,

Only in barefeet.

Never wearing shoes,

Not realizing the price paid.

The sacrifice the shadow takes,

To make time stand still.
