Yes Or No - Poem by Vijay Sai

Though it is well known
What the wise men coined
Don’t say yes
If you want to say no
It is also equally fitting
To conclude
Don’t say no
If you want to say yes!

    Yes and No the words have much importance in in real meaning and dealings of life situations I think. Here the poet correctly taken the theme in its very adjectives and acceptable norms that we have to take in such situations to behave like a wise man when he is supposed to take a decision of yes or no in such circumstances and opt the tactical decisions where the poet's words are important and poem is well written in little sentences but great meaning itself I felt.

    It seems more a statement of what you think than a poem to me. Good thought though!

    is this poem playing with the words? i just can't see it as wisdom.
    it is very revolting you are saying speak plainly of your thinking in this poem while those reviews praise much more than this poem deserves.
    and every one is saying nice nice nice poem every where, i mean, is nice the thing they are really thinking?
    i see, every one is wanting someone else to read their own poem, in that way they show nice.
    if i'm wrong, judge me, if not, if not, i really can't see the point of poem any more! (Report) Reply

    Nice thinking - 'yes' or 'no' sometimes it's not that simple
    but certain thing can only be conclude by firm 'yes' or 'no'
    lovely poem, thanks for sharing (Report) Reply

    You have made a bold statement in the poem. Those who follow your advice, will save many an embarrassment in life, though at times it may be very challenging to follow the advice straightaway.
    May I add to what you have already said, 'do not mix falsehood with truth while making a statement, for a mixture of truth and falsehood is more dangerous and worse than straight cut lies.'
    I guess, you might get some interest to relate your poem with mine, titled 'Yea And Nay'. (Report) Reply

    A Fantastic write. You have put me in puzzle whether to tell strictly either Yes or No. I am just wondering what one will use if partial Yes and partial No. It seems like replying bluntly at the same time clearly too. Its a thought provoking poem with a great meaning and I loved reading it.. (Report) Reply
