This is a long shot, but does anyone know of a poem with the ending line "this is for saying yes"? - July 19th 2010, 02:29 AM

I'm not sure whether the poem is obscure or not, so I don't know the likelihood of someone knowing what I'm talking about, but...
at a talent show the other night a girl did an amazing rendition of some slam poetry (I think?) which included something about "telling a fourteen year old boy he was beautiful" and telling a fourteen year old girl she was powerful, or something. Many of the lines began with "This is for...". It was fairly long, and I know the last line was "This is for saying yes". Anyone know what poem/piece I'm referring to?

It's called Say Yes by Andrea Gibson.



let me light up the sky, light it up for you
let me tell you why, i would die for you
When you whisper, you must be absolutely as sincere as when you scream.
9 out of every 10 problems in relationships can be solved by talking. So why are we so damn quiet?
