God Says Yes To Me

I found this at 2 Witches Blog, who in turn found it at The Library of Congress’ Poetry 180: A Poem A Day for American High Schools. I hope you enjoy it as much as Mama Kelly and I did.

God Says Yes To Me


-Kaylin Haught


I asked God if it was okay to be melodramatic
and she said yes
I asked her if it was okay to be short
and she said it sure is
I asked her if I could wear nail polish
or not wear nail polish
and she said honey
she calls me that sometimes
she said you can do just exactly
what you want to
Thanks God I said
And is it even okay if I don’t paragraph
my letters
Sweetcakes God said
who knows where she picked that up
what I’m telling you is
Yes Yes Yes

I found this poem over at a new blog[.]


I adore it …. the message of gentle humor-filled tolerance filling the relationship between a loving Divine parent and us, ever Her (His, Its) children.


Have a blessing-filled week


Mama Kelly
