We may touch people

with the words we write

but it won’t last long

 if our hearts are not right


We might say beautiful things

 that we don’t really mean

They soon will suspect

things are not how they seem


Our pen is so powerful

 why not use it right

They will see our hearts

  even if out of sight


Why we would even

 try to deceive

When in the end we might

 make someone grieve


God did not give

 us the gift to write

If the way we use it

 is not right!
