I say yes
not because of guilt.


 

 

I say

yes and no

with ease.

 

I say yes because I love you.

 

I say no because I love and care for myself.

 

I say yes because I enjoy doing for you.

 

I say no because I am overcommitted.

 

I say yes because doing for you lifts my heart.

 

I say no because I need to protect myself.

 

I say yes because I love to help you.

 

I say no to teach you to become independent.

 

I say yes

not because of guilt.

 

I say no

because I look at the big picture.

 

I say yes to help you create your inner peace.

 

I say no to create my own inner peace.

 

Yes and no are two sides of a coin.

 

Heads or tails?

 

I say

yes and no

with ease.
