God says Yes

Thank you, thank you to Sarah for bringing this wonderful poem to my attention. It spoke to me so clearly about what I am doing here, on this retreat. (I took the word "short" in the third line to be about the length of the stories I am writing!). May we be inspired, on this exciting day of great potential and change:

God Says Yes to Me
by 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 am a bit miffed to learn that I am not the only one God refers to as "Sweetcakes"; otherwise, I loved the poem. Thanks.
