The tree that bends

I was given a choice
Between telling the truth
And keeping a friend
My mother taught me
Stronger is the tree that bends
I never knew the depth of this statement
Until i was faced with this choice
So i chose to keep quiet
Ignore the voice
I saved a friend that day
It was one of the best decisions
Words can break the closest of bonds
So hold your tongue
For a good reason.
