A realization occurred to me that I had to voice,
There is a sacrifice within every choice.
It dawned on me that old saying is true,
We can't have our cake and eat it too.
I look around and see many that try,
So I stopped to ask myself why,
Do we continue and seldom learn,
We can't have everything for which we yearn.
Everything has a price, don't they see?
It all costs something, nothing is free.
Even Love has a cost....
Just look at the Cross.
