Speak not to destroy

You have a voice,
That has power;
If you lack what to say,
Don’t talk;
Be quiet;
If you don’t have
Something edifying,
Keep your mouth shut;
Do not speak because you
Want your voice
To be heard;
Speak because
You have something to say;
Let what you say
Be what builds
Not what destroys;
Important is your voice
Let it generate good,
And promote light
Not darkness.
Speak not to destroy,
Speak to build.
