Oh “NO” what are we going to do with you,

How many times have we crossed paths?

You keep changing form & colors too!

No you can’t go touch that

No you can’t sit there

No you can’t talk to that particular neighbor

No you can’t substitute

No, no discounts here, sorry

No, no VISA for you today Ma’am

No, you can’t marry that girl, over my dead body!

No, we appreciate your interest but we are not hiring

No, his parents are in a secret society, beware

No, you are not good enough, move!

No, you have to take the semester over, sorry

No, it’s too late to make it up, too late

No, he did not make it, sorry

No, no, no……

Are there any “No”s left?

Is there a “Yes” somewhere?

Plus, we start hearing this from infancy long before we are conscious of its meaning and impact
