Spit or Swallow?

Spit or Swallow?
by Roy dela Cruz

Spit or swallow?
What would you do?
When this question
Is thrown at you?

Are you going to consent?
Or turn your face the other way?
Are you going to give in?
Or pretend that you just don’t care?

Because it is inevitable
Relationships will soon come to this
Are you going to stand your ground?
Or would you consent just to please?

Nobody said it was easy
Especially if it’s something you don’t believe in
But when you are in a situation,
Are you going to spit or swallow?

...your pride, that is.
