The Sacrifice

death is a
sacrifice to a
greater good  - every
death is a
gesture towards light,
a bid for better, higher,
finer things, we all
sacrifice our beings
to the one great sea, the
one eye, the one
presence of breath and
life, of movement, limb
and birth, each
dying eye sees
clearer, higher, brighter
than it has ever
seen, for it is seeing
where  it is going
where  it has been
clearly for the first time
