Sin of Sacrifice

Sin of Sacrifice

By Shoeless Boy Wonder

Sitting alone in my room
I have given all to never bloom
Sacrificing everything I need
To avoid the sin of greed

My hands never hold anything
So I never feel like a king
For I am not a good man
Just a coward who always ran

Let those who need just take
No care for my own sake
I have earned only an abyss
And have forgotten bliss

Giving into others’ love
Forever to give a shove
Force them to find joy
Letting play, for I am just a toy

Defeated so others can win
I live with this sacrifice sin
Unable to say leave me be
Unable to let myself free

I create shackles to bind
So I don’t have the freedom to find
I will never rejoice
For I deny that choice

For if I were to I would only regret
All those who I hurt I would be in debt
For I could have helped them
But instead I just chose to condemn them

It may not make sense
For why I am tense
Why do this is I hate it
Why always take shit

I guess is cause I never learned
What it was like to get what you yearned
For its been just too long
And now I feel like the right in the wrong

To turn my back to those who plead
To deny them help to succeed
Would turn me into something I am not
A man with only careless thought.
