is it even okay if I don't paragraph (Sunday's Poem 26)

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 was going to go with another poem that seemed to exemplify the outlook I try to have on life, but then I happened to catch a glimpse of the title of this one, and I wondered what it was that God said yes to the author about.

Then I read it and loved that God said
yes to everything. I think if we can go through our day believing that, we'll never stop smiling, even when our Uncrustables PB&J aren't quite unfrozen as we eat them for breakfast on a Sunday morning at the office...

... and actually even
that wasn't that bad, as it made the peanut butter crunchy in a unique way.
