The Power Of No

No is a powerful word

It can be the proper answer

To many questions

Would you betray someone

Would you cheat

Would you lie

Would you steal

Will you go against your principles

Some would say what you say yes to

Makes you who you are

I would argue the opposite

What you say no to

Shapes you more than what

You say yes to

No has the power to drastically

Change a life

No I will not drink and drive

No to a marriage proposal

No is not the end all be all

But no shapes you just as much

If not more than yes

No can be the vehicle of mercy

No I will not push the envelope too far

No enough is enough

No I will forgive instead of hate

What has shaped you more

Yes or no
