True Sacrifice – Poem by Govind Ramakrishnan

parting with something dear
subjugating personal desires
giving up for a greater cause….
like a son sent to war
for country sake,
like selling her body
each night
to feed a big family,
or seeing this brave mother
donate vital organs
to her dying son
just to see him live
for a few months more…
