As you go through life.
Tread softly and mind how you go,
As your words can cut like a knife,
You can cause so much sorrow.
You may not realise what you have said,
But words have caused many wounds which have bled.
People will often try to hide these wounds from you,
But tears cannot be hidden from view.
Eyes are windows to the soul,
Tears make the eyes blur,
Tears make friends foe,
Tears can happen with the slightest slur.
Be cautious, be kind,
Pray to keep a friend next time.
Next time you open your trap,
That may mean a friendship coming to a wrap.
