Sacrifice

Sacrifice,
ha!
Meaning nothing,
to the average Joe.
Yet,
sacrifice,
has become my life.
Putting others
always ahead of myself.
Hurting deep inside,
never letting it out,
for fear,
of others being hurt.
Burying myself
deep i my heart,
never,
to let it out.
Sacrificing myself,
for the sake of others,
this has become my life.
But,
am i losing myself?
going through the motions,
living for others.
Need to live for GOD,
but am I?
So caught up,
in piecing others
together again.
My own heart?
shattered,
but not fixing it,
never fixing it.
Fixing takes time,
time needed to,
put others back together.
So where do I fall,
in this mess of life?
As a sacrifice for others,
never for me,
Is this GOD's path for me?
It almost seems,
like living in a dream.
Buried feelings,
they just get in the way.
A sacrifice for others,
can be the hardest path,
but GOD has chosen it,
for me,
not them.
So try and survive I must,
for others count on me.
Thus the life,
Of sacrifice.
