“No Thank You”

“No thank you” is not rejection, 

These manners are a simple boundary;

Guarding what is precious to them

So they may live as “free”.

“No thank you” doesn’t mean you’re not wanted –

Though you might see a lock;

This closed door is keeping safe what’s being perfected…

do not try to change The Clock.

“No thank you” will build muscles

Upon your heart; compassion will grow-

When you begin guarding your own boundaries…..

Unique is the Garden we sow.
