Compromise

Rating: 4.9

Thousands of new ventures
Took birth with Expectations
Twisted to fit into self-images
Reflected - own perceptions.

Never compromising
No looking beyond
Want of absolute value
Is this the cause of impediments?

Thousands of failures
Fell on the combat zone
Swept away remnants
Reflected – protuberances

Whether to compromise
How much to look beyond
Extent of approximation acceptable
Will it bring ecstasy?

Compromise calls mutter
No Expiry Date Label
Itching causes abrasion
Where is the elation?

Pick possible over ideal
Essence of endurance as cover
Valor to swallow tears, Optimism the shower
Keep compromises at bay.

Compromise is business
Business is commercial
Ventures aimed at Trade Center?
Then go for compromises.

vidi ji a fantastic write.. but belongs to the realms of utopia...accross most physical, psychosocial and psychological devides, the fault lines remain as a permanant reminder of upheavel..the world is shrinking and so is the grace and tolerance very well written cheers
