?

Words, so easily spoken

No concern for the feelings of another

It leaves behind people who are broken

By what we say to each other

?

Words, they cut so deep

Whether serious or in jest

Words to ourselves we should keep

If we know that it's not for the best

?

Don't cause hurt or pain

Think before you speak

What do you think you can gain?

By stomping on the one who is weak

?

Count your words one by one

If you do that, you're one in a million

It can cause someone to stay or run

Think before you offer your opinion

?

Don't use words lightly

Use it to encourage, to uplift

Even if change appears slightly

Your words can keep someone adrift

?

So let us all try

To speak a word that is kind

Life is swiftly passing by

Think before you speak your mind

?
