Why You Must Say Must

November 23, 2013

Quit saying “You Have To.”

No one “Has To.”

The verb implies choice.

And a choice between a person’s free will

And something he or she has to do

Is always

Forfeit because personal bias.

You must say must because it sounds strong.

Must means immediacy.

Even if whoever receives this command

Can’t understand its meaning,

The word straightens your back.

It inflates your chest.

Then you say “You must do this”


– Matthew Sawyer
