Careless words wound

But require us to forgive.

Without forgiveness in this world,

Christ’s teachings can’t live.

Careless words remind me

That we should all stop and think.

Carelessness, in just one sentence,

Will cause a heart to sink.

When we falter, fail or fall,

We must admit to any and all.

Careless words, like rude behavior,

Must be forgiven

If Christ is our Savior.

When the time comes

And there is nothing nice to say,

The better option is to turn

And walk away.

Careless words run rampant when

We want to talk about everyone else’s sin.

Despite what we hear,

Regardless of what we saw,

Sometimes the best thing

Is to say nothing at all.
