Use the Tongue of the Wise: OctPoWriMo 2019, Day Seven

Lord, may I always speak with the tongue of the wise,

No rash or ugly words that like swords can destroy.

May I constantly speak words that bring healing,

Being ever careful of the words that I deploy.

For I am acutely aware of the power of words

And of their life-long impact on people’s lives.

So, Lord, let me always think twice before I speak,

Using uplifting words that help people to thrive.

Written for the OctPoWriMo Challenge of 31 poems in 31 days. Day Seven prompt is Tongue–Tasting or Speaking. Proverbs 12:18: There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
