Sacrifice

Without experiencing the benefits,
Of what the act of sacrifice brings...
The purpose of not being exposed to it,
Goes as another thing meaningless...
For those accustomed to throwing tantrums,
To get with a whining...
Whatever it is wished to quickly get.
Not earned to learn to value.

And learning to value life to not take for granted,
Makes the receiving after the act of sacrifice done...
Completed by someone giving with a focus to do,
Is a benefit bestowed and noticeable...
By the one who knows what they have gone through,
To ultimately be rewarded and accept...
Without expectation,
For their unselfish thoughtfulness.
