Poetry Friday: The Most Powerful Spell The Witch Gave Me by Nikita Gill

Current Mood: sleepy
Current Song: Shadowfeet by Brooke Fraser

"No" -
a single, powerful, two letter spell
with the ability to liberate you
if only you learn to use it unapologetically
and cast it without fear.

yes!

I will have to share this with my daughter. She's practicing how to say no to the demands of others.

Re: yes!

Fantastic. Tell her "no" is a complete sentence. It needs no further explanation nor apology.

This is the way my mother told me to say it, no excuses, just "no". I wish I could share the poem with her. She would be quite happy! Thanks!

"No" that's good, and I like "cast it without fear." Not always easy.

Yep, even if it isn't always easy, it's ALWAYS better to be true to yourself, and do the right thing.
