Just Say No

No
One of the first words issued from a baby’s mouth
Still a word I’m unable to say
Could you do me a favor…?
No!
Please. This is the last time
No.
Do this for me
No?
I need your help
Fine
You’ll do it for me
Yes
But wait…
Whatever happened to no?

Two simple letters
N-O
One word
What part of no don’t you understand?
All of it
It clicks in my head
I did it
I said no

The guilt sets in
Not again
How could I?
They needed me
I don’t want to…
But I must
So…
The answer is yes
But
One day it will be no
