‼️UPON THIS SHELF‼️

‼️UPON THIS SHELF‼️

‼️UPON THIS SHELF‼️


I look at others and I do see

What I don’t have inside of me

I’m all alone beside myself

Atop a wooden empty shelf


I look below an endless pit

I look above and feel misfit

To the left and then the right

I try so hard with all my might


Are there things that I must know

Is there something I must show

Will I fit in and be ok

It takes me time to find my way


There is a reason here I perch

Upon this shelf of carved out birch

And when I wonder what’s in store

Something inside just says there’s more


There’s room for you upon this shelf

And in return you’ll find yourself

Far better yet, don’t disregard

Join me now for this is hard


I’m lonely yes but just a bit

I’ll wait some more until you hit

A point inside there’s no return

Oh my your here! How fast you learn


A friend just sat right next to me

Someone who believed in me

The shelf so lonely now was shared

A friend with me for whom I cared


This friend of mine was wise and smart

Applauded me and touched my heart

“Dear little book upon this shelf

It’s time to share and nothing else


Your pages are your own to write

You have the answers, you were right

Never let the cover fool you

Be yourself in all that you do”


Big book in all its history

Said these words to little me

Inside of you is something real

And It’s ok… to say how you feel

I am a deep thinker, lover of thoughts, a prolific writer sharing my words. In sharing I am caring. I am a member of the human race with an appetite to motivate, inspire, empower and provoke thinking. I stand for dignity in humanity. I am compelled to a vision that we are all here for a reason, life is like a deck of cards... “My cards. My deal. Life is learning the game!” #opism What is OPISM? I have come up with this term as my nick name is Op and they are my own quotes representing a moral doctorine belief system. Thus...Op+ism=Opism. #opism My Motto! “Dignity is Free” My professional experience is disbursed across industries from financial services and sales to that of personal and emergency care. As one who has trained and coached, mentored and taught; it has become a passion within to witness and feel joy in the achievement and success of others that I have been associated with. I am a lifelong learner and have created and facilitated various training materials. It is through such experience that I discovered the power of positive feedback in both professional and personal manners. I am self disciplined, accountable, determined, humble, loyal and adaptive; but above all I value my integrity! I am a decent human being. It is with my greatest pleasure to share with others the power of positive words.
