Life Around The Corner

Choosing Life and Operating Happiness

No Is No

Nothing has been real
In the past six months.
The days, the nights,
They do not exist.
For the first time in my life
I feel like something was
Taken away from me.
I don’t know how to deal with it.
I have yet to let it go.
I have been pulling a rope on one end,
Life on the other.
Life will let me pull forever,
Till I let go.
How many times can I hear the word “No”?
Like a little girl with two ponytails,
I stomp my feet on the ground.
Like she wants a lollipop,
I want This love.
I am stubborn.
This sweet, comforting taste
Is making me act crazy.
How many times can I hear the word “No”?
Like life isn’t thrilled by my pulling,
Like a lollipop doesn’t care of a girl’s craving,
You don’t mind my yearning or my love.

  1. Sometimes a NO helps. At other times it just pulls us backs, depending on the situation. I love your ideas and how you write with a lot of empathy. It is so appealing. 🤗
