If at you is hurled rudeness 
Or, you’ve been on edge for some time 
Or, to someone you need to constructively criticize 
In human nature, you’d like to say first thing comes to mind 
Without having considered the effects bad words will leave behind 
Before saying them, think if the words are kind

If the words will be brash and bold
It’s not a response, but a scold
The wrong words can cause a relationship to fold
And the rift may grow old
So, before speaking, take a little time 
To think about saying it kind
And the regret for hurting one won’t be on your mind

Saying it kind, doesn’t make you a weakling
Or someone who can’t deal with controversial sayings
It just makes you trying to be a peaceful being
And for that a calm voice is more achieving 
James 3:5-6 talks about the tongue being unruly
So, control it by saying it kind; it’s our duty.
