Compromise
AJ (11-06-1987 / India)

Compromise

I killed my pride
For a smile on your face;
I hid my smile
For the comfort of your heart;
I controlled my heart
For your peace of mind;
I stopped thinking
For the happiness of yours;
I sacrificed my happiness
For your satisfaction in life;
I disregarded my satisfaction
For your joy;
I hated my joy
For your future;
I destroyed my future
To let you grow;
Giving my nutrition,
I see you grow tall -
Meanwhile 'I' was fading.
I gave 'myself' for 'you'....
Won't you tell that you love me? ? ?

A woman making sacrfices for a compromise for long awaited words, I LOVE YOU. Topic is simple but the poetess has penned it in a style that is extra ordinary, amazing and attractive.
Brilliant piece! I enjoyed reading it!
Giving nutrition and having compromise is very amazing definitely. Nicely penned poem shared.10
Sacrificing ones own interests and future as a compromise for getting love of the loved one is a natural option. However, sacrifice should not go in vain and the person must get love in return. Other wise.....! Nice verse and the thought of dejection after so much sacrifice is touching. Thanks for sharing.10 points.
