You Can Just Say No††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††

 

by Beverly Nadler

There is a way out of the maze

There is a way through the haze

No matter what your mind says is so --

You donít have to listen

You can just say no.

 

Unless what your mind says feels right

Unless what it tells you brings you delight

You can decide whatís really so --

You donít have to listen

You can just say no.

 

Sometimes what your mind says is true

And makes you feel good about being you.

It makes you love the life youíre living

And inspires you to be loving and giving.

 

But when the things it says are unkind

Donít let your mind

Trap you into believing its lies.

Donít be deceivedÖ your heart knows otherwise.

 

There is a way through the maze,

There is a way through the haze.

No matter what your mind says is so --

You donít have to listen

You can just say no.
