Tame The Tongue In Written Word?

ID-10021164

Speech in black and white
Same threat as mouth in action?
Or does it lose might?
______________________________________
I question the written word
Expressing thoughts with edits
Maybe it’s not as dangerous
As the human tongue is
The tongue, mighty and destructive
A small fire ignites the entire forest (James 3:5)
Strange that something so small
Can be packed with such abhorrence
Death and life abide in the tongue (Proverbs 18:21)
And it can’t be tamed by man (James 3:8)
So I’d like to think that black and white
Will give me the upper hand
