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.
