The greatest WEAPON with with we each are endowed,
Is our TONGUE …. how our words put to use,
When demeaning another, caustic and vile,
That weapon is a form of abuse.
Sarcasm is referred to as the “tearing of flesh”,
Our words can rip others apart,
Cause pain and sorrow …. anger, ill feelings,
It damages …. right to the heart.
Instead of a weapon, our speech can uplift,
Can be positive, encouraging, supportive,
It can be one of God’s greatest blessings,
To aid others …. it can be restorative ….
Boost their worth …. encourage their talents,
With God’s word …. may their FAITH increase.
Positive speech …. the greatest of GIFTS,
As a weapon …. we must STOP …. it must cease.
