I Ask

I ask for a little help

For advice

For a penny

Or even a grain of rice
The answer could be a promising Yes,

Or a denying No.

I wish a Yes, a big one, could push itself out of your mouth

This would make my heart pound joyfully

In a rhythm that is more musical

However, a No would crush my soul

It would break the threads that hold my heart together 

Maybe, it could even be a disappointment to my high hopes

But then again, you wouldnt know

I would accept it gracefully.
Out of all this, I know one thing for sure…

Had I not asked, I wouldn’t have known.
