My Daughters first word will be “no”

And she will wield it like a club,

It will be her sovereign right,

No, N – O –

As in “Not now”

“No, Thank you”

As in, “Not yours to Touch”

 

I will not like it, at times,

but “no” will be her shield.

It may make her few friends,

but “no” will set her free.

 

No, as in “I can’t”

As in “this is too much”.

 

My Daughter’s first word will be “no”,

 

and she will know that it’s a word she is worth.
