Sacrifice

There are certainly no bounds to you
My mother once said
If you can do this
You can do anything

In retrospect
I accept all the praise
With folded hands

But humbly
Almost shamefully
I must throw all your love
Down the abyss

A year and a half
I spent in agony
What happened happened
I can't accept anymore

I had my fun
I enjoyed learning
But now it's too late

My mother once said
Nothing is achieved without sacrifice
A life of fun and games
Is an embodiment of pure shame

This is my new challenge
I cannot falter
This is my new life
Move faster?
