Sacrifice – Mocha K. Scroggins

Your love, for my time,

     Your heart but, not mine;

Your trust, for my lust,

   Your years, for my months;

Your happiness, for my anger.

  Your companionship, though,

     I was a stranger;

Your peace of mind,

  for my constant high

     Your honesty, for all my lies;

Had I Known I was going

 w the wrong direction,

   I wouldn’t have foolishly

    taken another step.

But, it seems that,

  I had to lose you, to

   understand what sacrifice really meant….
