A Compromise I Made - 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,
Just to win the war, it has nothing to shy.
A couple not having a good relationship still together passing the life
Just for their coming generations, a good husband and a good wife.
But a compromise on ethics has no excuse.
I condemn, and I refuse.
Yes, it was me, who wrote a poem with the title "Compromises",
Again it's me who smiles, rewrites it and boldly revises.

A compromise I made in love let me confess
The beautiful forbidden fruit it's might you can guess
Yes, I became disobedient and forgot all the ethics
Hot dynamics of life overruled the frozen statics!
Long ago in a beautiful garden I don't know who "He" is?
A naughty friend who let me knew as to who "She" is.
After knowing her I don't need to know anyone else
She now rules my heart and moves with my pulse.

Helplessly, with ethics, I made a decent compromise
Never mind, in love the ethics one may revise.

    I have been trying to comment on this poem for a long while now, unfortunately, it was not working.
    Hope now, i am able to complete my comment.
    Akhtar Sahab, this is a forthright poem, which whether a compromise or not, brings the essence of love and life
    in its many shades. I like the way you have concluded it. May i quote:
    Helplessly, with ethics, I made a decent compromise
    Never mind, in love the ethics one may revise.
    Lovely! Top marks. Hope the button works. :)

    For love, everything is justified.
    If it is not, then just compromise.
    Which e'er way, its a beautiful write
    And reading it, was a great delight
    The best Valentine poem that I have read, thank you sir
