Checks and Balances in Follow the Leader

“Think of the last time

You were happy…

Think of the last time

You were angry…

Which will you choose

Next time?”

-Heart of a Buddha

(Compliments of the amida society)

Checks and Balances in Follow the Leader

I say no.

Not because I don’t want to be with you.

Not because you don’t turn me on.

Not because I don’t see a future in your eyes.

I say no.

Because I love myself.

Because I expect a gentleman.

Because I am worth the waiting.

Because we are worth the personal growth.

I say yes.

Not because I need you or have to be with you.

Not because you are “in” or “out” of my league.

Not because you are the best I have ever had or ever will have.

I say yes.

Because I feel good about it.

Because I enjoy respecting your wants.

Because I want to practice following your lead.

Because you cherish my feelings and my no.

When I say yes.

You will have earned it.

You will have made adjustments for our happiness.

You and I will make sense together.

We will be worth a longer fight…in love.

 

Peace, love and the well awaited Yes.
