I can say “no”

as I smile

as I speak politely

as my voice remains

quiet and calm

the refusal is still immutable


a boundary line

not to be crossed

I can speak refusal

without being the villain

without becoming the victim

holding steady against pressure

I can silence your voice

as it drones against refusal

a simple task

of my mind turning away

I can speak my “no”

with a smile

and my armor is just as strong – Caroline A. Slee
