The Alternative is YES

Shall we continue to play this game?
Dance around each other in curiosity
Not saying that which is in our hearts
For fear has a deep seated root within us
Of foolishness and embarrassment
We are so terribly afraid
We bide our time and wait
The other chess player to make the move

Oh what freedom shall we enjoy
Should we choose to say that which we feel?
What outcome could be so terrible
That we could not endure it?
Is NO such an awful statement
That we would play farce to avoid it at all cost?
YES could be the alternative
That we are not giving a chance
