What does compromise really mean?
You are often dissatisfied,
The decision finally reached
Implied you lost something.
That is how it works in democracy
You must be ready to accept that.
The least imperfect system
We call it.
Do we have any other choice?
Yet if you belong to a minority
You will always have to
Stand for your rights.
You will often feel misunderstood
And sometimes even discriminated.
You must learn to live with that.
Even with democracy and compromise
The world is full of power abuse.
