Compromise or Compromised

To compromise, meet on common ground.

Committed to change, both parties bound .

That is how I thought it would be.

I thought that, it was silly of me.

You cannot change, your way critical.

I must change, that would be practical.

For you yes, but I suffer dearly.

I lose self, must protest clearly.

If, in this, cannot meet me half way,

On this side of fence I’d rather stay.
