If I ask a favor,
will you help me-
Or, will you betray my trust
that was built up for years?
If I tell you a secret,
will you keep it to the grave-
Or, will you tell the next person you meet?
When I need your help,
will you lend a hand-
Or, will you just leave me there to die?
If I reach out to help another,
will you back me up in case I fall-
Or, will you put a knife in my back?
When my family is in trouble,
can I count on you-
Or, will you save your own skin at the first dark cloud?
When you have a choice,
will you make the one that benefits others-
Or, will you put someone in harm's way to save yourself?
When something is wrong,
will you speak out-
Or, will you stay silent to keep a good reputation?
