Floating Words

If all the words ever spoken
Float aimlessly in the air
Do you ever stop and wonder
What happened to your share?

Could they be in outer space?
Floating around the milky way?
More likely in God’s holding tank
Awaiting your judgement day

Oh, how I wish I could recall
The ones of which I am ashamed
Words that were spoken in haste
To the souls, spirits I’ve maimed

They say your tongue betrays you
It reveals your inner thoughts
If you can’t learn to control it
You’ll reap the eternity it bought

Words are such eternal things
So be careful what you say
They may come back to haunt you
Before God on judgement day
