the necessity for compromise

who is satisfied with the compromise

neither you nor I

but when the water went above the head

it was time to say goodbye

at least the rot didn’t get exposed

at least the secrets were not disclosed

at least the peace of mind remained

at least the artificial rapport was maintained

life is a basket of compromises

and this wisdom gets developed with maturity

compromises are better than the conflicts

at least the character doesn’t get stripped
