Martyrdom

Taught to live, to appreciate life.

Shown the lighter side, the grander side of life.

Wiser teaches well, Friend flies away…

Wiser needs to be selfish, helping others has its place

But self is the whole, being a martyr for love is not what

Has got to be done, to ride, to fly, to live, to die

Vicariously incarnate, seeing dreams realized

Taking no credit for credit is not to be had

A guide, a teacher, a mentor, a “friend”

Forgotten but for nostalgic reminiscence.
