I try to be cognizant of the words I speak,
Those words once expressed I cannot tweak.

I'm found using words that one time spent,
Brought distress to another and not my intent.

Precipitant words bent on inflicting pain,
From abrasive word usage I'll try to refrain.

I try guarding my tongue while having my say,
Remembering, tone and intent my words convey.

Sometimes they're orated blended with tears,
But always finding lodging at the target's ears.

Some attributed sayings I don't always own,
Words launched by another and oft overblown.

I find it somewhat amusing and quite absurd,
Your thinking my EGO demands the last word.
