Yes or No


Is the word today ‘yes’ or ‘no’

Today was the day that ‘yes’ had overruled her simple ‘no’

‘Yes,’ ‘Yes,’ ‘Yes,’ had become second nature to them

‘No,’ was a rarely spoken word  around those ‘Yes’ characters

The word ‘yes’ had manipulated their ability to say ‘no’ and end

the continued day in and day out cycle

‘Yes’ had so eloquently taken over their mind that ‘yes’ had controlled

even their hand to mouth movement

Dragging them unknowingly further from reality into a spiral

vortex taking the few unfortunate to where they no longer could grab

a hold of the ladder that would bring them back to the real

world of reality again

As they fall deeper into the claws’,  that one word, ‘yes’ was easily

visible as the root of this vicious cycle

As her body yearned to say ‘yes’ she stayed strong

Now the dilemma of how the ‘no’  might change the night

However, she had learned that saying ‘yes’ over and over about

killed her along the way

Her ‘no’ was the only one

The outlandish and harsh attacks had they lost their sense of reality by

saying  ‘yes’ and caused them to outcast the only ‘no’ but she kept her

clear head and knew she did the right thing

She now enjoys the beauty of her soul from learning to say ‘no’

Never let ‘no’ question your decisions because the ‘yes’ will only be

temporary as the ‘no’ might make you feel like a goody two-shoes

but you will be able to enjoy the presence of real beauty and not lost in this

temporary world of false motivations making you feel the

laughter with silent sorrow from the ‘no’ crowd

while the ‘yes’ crowd is laughing beyond control not understanding

that the laughing is not with them but at them

When all is said and done the ones who say ‘no’ will win in the long run

Take this from the person writing this poem

Being on the brink of death multiple times eventually will bring a

dynamite kick in the pants

Listen from the words of someone who has experienced both sides

of the ‘yes’ and ‘no.’

Hope you all enjoyed this poem. It had been stirring at my heart strings to write it.

My second goal is to take this blog to the next level. I want to start a business and be a motivational speaker for any situation. I want to have sessions that can cater to businesses, single parents, team building, couples, divorces or widowed, teens, medical issues, I think you see what I'm saying. I want to write short books that can enlighten, empower, motivate, encourage, teach, and help. Basically, I want to make a difference in others lives and help people see how the impossible can become possible with enough hard work and dedication.
