The compromise

Redundant emotions

Soulless passion

Aggrieved laughter

Pretentious courage

Conceited promises


Tad too late

It dawned upon me

Hitting the hardest way

That life has always been

An overflowing compromise


This awakening, bitter or not

Guess I will never know

But for sure, I know

Trading my integrity,

been the mother of all compromises
