No #AToZChallenge

One must learn
to hear NO.
One must learn
to say NO.

It’s high time
She needs
to switch from
former to later.

    • Thanks Ann. I am glad you liked it. It’s my very first year of this challenge, and all poems are instant.


  2. No is a very important word. You cannot live your own life without learning how to say it.

  3. Sadly, the scenario, in rural and urban areas alike, for the “She” gender is a getting to hear a “No” most of the times. Off late however the things are improving gradually.
    But need to be addressed is that “She” should have the mindset to say No when she hears NO!
    Well worded…

    Short and powerful poem! Liked it much. No is a super important word, and to know exactly when to say it is a life-skill. Here from the A-Z and enjoyed being here.

    Simple but meaningful. Even I find it hard to say “No.” It’s one thing that sometimes is difficult to do…

    LOL! Short and very to the point. N is for Nuggets and News as you Build a Better Blog. #AtoZchallenge.


  10. a wonderful concept… true unfortunately even today for so many. Used to having their wishes thwarted without ever saying no themselves.

  11. It can take a surprising amount of courage to say no to people, but sometimes you just have to do it. Otherwise you’ll have no time or energy left for yourself.
