The missionary's life is a call to sacrifice as you have portrayed so clearly in your poem. You have managed to give a sombre tone to the poem as befits the theme.

Sometimes reality has to be stated. These verses work well.
This is an amazing work of art. You brough the message and emotion across very vividly and clearly. Good title too.
This is a good reminder of what missionaries often face. Thank you for sharing.
