No

My daughters first word will be No.

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 teach her not to yield.

 

No, N- O-  as in “I can’t”

As in “this is too much”.

 

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

and she will know what she is worth.
