worth it

-

to sacrifice yourself

for another's happiness

feel the aching pain within

as you watch their joy

when you hurt someone

intentionally; only to

further hurt yourself

all just for them;

is it worth it?

-

when all that is done

could have been in vain

if the painful forfeit

is viewed as betrayal

perhaps you regret

but it's already too late

and there's nothing left—

all just for them;

is it worth it?

-

and she replied;

I'll let you know…

when I find the answer
