Tuesday Poem: God Says to Me

Illustration image by despardes.com

I asked God if it was ok to be melodramatic
and she says yes
I asked her if it was ok to be short
and he said sure it is
I asked her if I could wear nail polish
or not wear nail polish
and he 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
