Words after words lines in random order
Telling-explaining-exceeding the border
Words on a page can be safer than spoken
Or often a danger and peace will be broken
8 or 10 words can be squeezed into one
And Thy will not MY will, yes, God's will be done
See?
Replace one small word and the meaning will change
Yes words need some thought and much time to arrange
Spelling-preferred if put down to be seen
Important to you that 'they' know what you mean
The word has it's power-a YES or a NO
My mouth needs training-it decides where I go
Emotional words can spill beyond repair
Think what you're saying-step back-be aware
I don't want my speech to mean little to you
I want to keep word and my word to ring true
Consider the Word of God-He speaks
They echo alive with no need of repeats
There are times and emotions that needn't be said
But it's hard to be silent and listen instead
Since being word conscious I'll pledge for today
To check before speaking and mindful to say
I'll practice to listen-for here's where I'm flawed
'Cos while I keep talking, I can't hear the Lord
Unless it's unselfishly helpful and true then,
I'll hear what GOD'S saying, and chatter less too then!
