Valued Life

Sacrifice all that you have
for the one yo love?
The answer isn't to hard
if you love them enough.
What about a stranger,
would that be rough to decide?
How can you hide the feeling of NO!
What about for an unborn baby?
They would go without seeing the sunset or to lay at rest with the stars, maybe you would.
A criminal behind bars though?
They have a family,
they might not be guilty,
how do you know?
Are they worth it to give up
your life?
Self Sacrifice is hard!
This world is nothing without
love enough for another life.
Is yours worth theirs?
The answer is tough.

Your poem is angry but the words don't really flow with the emotion. It feels like a rant you made up in your head.
