Would I ever be able to control my lips?
When I am upset can I abstain not to speak?
I don’t know, but I wish that I could’ve,
My life is full of “What if I would’ve?”
What if I would’ve stood against the flow,
That pushes me to say things I should’ve let go?
Is my place to judge, to bring one down?
If I cannot build, can I just not tear down?
Can I say: “I will talk on this tomorrow.”?
When my heart is not so full of sorrow
Can I pause, analyze, think, bite my tongue?
Can I just admit that I did something wrong?
I am hurting the ones that I love the most!
Is it there anything I could do worst?
I do not want to end up ugly, hated, and alone,
I do not want to have a heart of stone.
Lord please change me to be,
Loving and Kind like your Majesty.
To praise, build and lift up,
If it’s not helping me, to just shut up.
