The Brave No (46/365)

Sometimes the bravest thing

you can say is no

And it’s not as alluring

as that big yes

yes I will join you

yes let’s escape together

yes let’s runaway

sometimes staying is best

because I have seen people

settle  for so much more

with a yes

then with a no

No is harder

No takes leaps

No is standing by yourself

in a dark room,

writing thoughts no one sees

hoping one day

it will be worth it

And believing

that you will fly

when there is no

guarantee of flight

But when the world hands you it’s cosmic plate of yes

and you can final utter it knowing nothing was settled

And it will be worth saying no to him tonight
