Don’t speak with a tongue framed in fire
Erase unkind print and start a new page
Let your words sing as blue as sapphire


Tears and hatred should never conspire
Anger rattling the bars of its cage
Don’t speak with a tongue framed in fire


Mountains of insults, raise yourself higher
Though it may be hard in this day and age
Let your words sing as blue as sapphire


Flames spread by the mouth of a liar
Ignore the heat of unruly rage
Don’t speak with a tongue framed in fire


Set out to enlighten and inspire
Plagued by silence, you can make your own stage
Let your words sing as blue as sapphire


Words can cut as sharp as barbed wire                      
Refuse to partake in a war set to wage                           
Don’t speak with a tongue framed in fire
Let your words sing as blue as sapphire
