Compromises - Poem by Akhtar Jawad

A word widely misspelled,
Dictionary adds and justifies,
And over all accepted,
A welcoming compromise.

An enemy of an enemy,
Becomes an ally,
To win the war,
Nothing to shy.

A couple having adverse relations,
Live together and pass the life.
Just for their coming generations,
A good husband and a wife.

But a compromise on ethics,
Has no excuse.
I condemn,
I refuse.

    People do compromise and adjust to have a peaceful existence but compromising with ethics and our values would never give our soul and mind any peace. A great truth brought forth in the most brilliant manner. (Report) Reply

    “Tis a bold statement and true, compromises are part of peaceful co-existence in a family, or neighborhood. But, yes, ones principle and ethics should remain 'non-negotiable'. Lovely poem. Read mine - Who Am I -

    I hold the view that compromises are part of the doctrine of peaceful co-existence among people in a family, neighborhood or at national and international fora. But, yes, ones principle and ethics should remain 'not negotiable'. Thanks for this lovely poem and a bold statement. (Report) Reply

    Compromise on ethics is never possible. It is like color of skin which can not be erased. There are so many inherent quality with every one like some one can lie fluently but some one can never. One royal person asked me to write in his praise. I flatly refused because my pen can not move. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply
