Wisdom with Words


Words, words so many
so hard to control
why can't we do so?
when they can damage our soul

Scripture says be careful
not to speak with rashness
as God hears our every word
to do so would be madness

So it would be sensible
to make our words few
that indeed would be wise
for once spoken hard to undo

It's wise to listen to God
for He always knows best
as the creator started the world
so follow Him to be blessed
