Just Say No

Just say no
until you can say yes
a resounding, full-bodied, soulfelt
YES
Just say no
until you know
until the price of “no” is too high
a loss too great to justify
Just say no
for today
tomorrow brings its own questions
answered in time
nothing certain but this
and change
For today
I say no
I let go
of expectation, obligation, promise
and you
I say yes
YES
to hope, joy
and
love
a minefield covered in daisies
I gingerly step
holding my heart in my hands
a heart that is
Mine
ready to explode
I hold the pin
steady
I say no to
death, destruction, pain
confusion, doubt, fear
in my mindfield
I say no
just for
today
I say
no

  1. This is great, Sooz. Good timing for the sentiment to say know until it’s unbearable. It’s too easy to say yes to things we don’t really need…
