Sacrifice

Not living your life,
not being yourself,
is bad for your health.

Injustice gathers momentum 
over the years. Masking
heart and soul. Life in arrears.

Ageing and degeneration
come early, snatching
time and faculties:
disputing identity
and status.

Unimagined liberty
laid waste.

One thought on “Sacrifice

  1. This is so powerful on so many levels and will touch the heart of many. How many of us do this women in particularly. I know most will think it is about gay people, but it is much deeper than that. How many women live a lie and die with dreams unfulfilled this needs to be read by a wider audience. Brilliant once again Val xx
