[tab id=1]When words leave your mouth
Send them away with nothing but truth.
When words have grown maturely into sentences,
Love songs
And have packed for their journey to ears and all sorts of minds,
Send them away with bags and bags of honesty.
Give them to the world with light,
Release them with Zeal and confidence.
When words leave your mouth,
Let them walk freely with light,
Regret nothing but lies,
Hold back nothing but hate,
Love them enough to share them openly as they are.
When words leave your mouth,
Teach them to understand honesty as growth.[/tab]
