Dismiss the myth 2



They say “Talk is cheap,” but the right words are priceless

I had to pause and meditate just to write this

If the Life switch

Is truly in the tongue’s power

Then it’s our

Responsibility to fight this

Plague threatening to leave us lifeless


“I can say what I want!

I mean, is it your tongue?”

I wish you only knew

The power of the words

That you use and abuse

For fun


Free speech could be very costly

Try speaking out of turn in a courtroom

And once the Judge pronounces your sentence

No word can overthrow what the Judge ruled


Words open doors

Words open floors

And if words begin worlds and words begin wars

Then we should stop to think before our words become swords

That we use to hurt ourselves and ours

Hurts, that even when healed, cause scars


Talk is cheap, but before you speak

Think how your words could heal the sick

In heart, in mind, in body or soul

Your tongue is your servant, so stay in control


Yes, your tongue’s a servant

And words are served

To fill the thirsty

Or bring more thirst

So speak with wisdom

Or, please, not at all

Silence could be far louder

Than a thousand waterfalls


After guarding your thoughts and thinking aright

Guard your words, let your speech be light

War with your mouth, let your speech be fight

Speak to the future till it comes into sight


Talk is cheap and words are free

If so, speak prosperity!

And faith, and strength, and life, and peace!

Speak and watch your troubles flee!


Speak to the things you need to exist

Speak to the storm and watch it desist

Speak to the air and enjoy its breeze

Speak to the ocean and enjoy the beach


Say what you want, and not what you don’t

Your words are seeds; you reap what you sow

So plant them carefully and watch them grow

Free speach really must be the greatest power we hold
