    This key board often acts as my window
    As i sit and look out as you look in
    Sometimes a musical phrase noted with a crescendo
    Come gushing from the tip of my pen
    Like an artillery piece i fire for effect
    Gauging my range and zooming on in
    The mistakes i've made i dutifully correct
    Assuming responsibility for all of my sin
    The looseness of my tongue, it has brought
    In the past again and again
    When i was unconcerned about the destruction i wrought
    And immature just spitting in the wind
    Not knowing of the great blessing i possess
    Nor the weapon i wield in my hand
    Yes i must openly confess
    i was too dumb to even comprehend
    Now i know responsibility goes with what i write
    And i prepare now when i'm ready to send
    Phrases out into the bright day and the darkness of the mystical night
    See me in my window, i'm thinking of you, my friend
    And my enemy for you there's vicious fight
    These words they are powerful beyond end
    They travel on far beyond unlimited sight
    They maim and kill and they also mend
    i can't just carelessly put them into flight
    i now know......
    My words will witness for or against me in the end

    So profoundly written. With any gift there comes a responsibility not to use it for harm, for our words can cut much deeper than a knife.
