In a dream when I was young

There was a lady with a man

With these two together strong

In my dream their love began

To this man the woman loved

Her heart she had allowed

In return he loved her too

His heart he too had vowed

In this dream when I a child

Forever meant all time

In the future I could see

A lady with her mind

The world immense can not surmise

Child’s dream’s capacity

It tries to take what does surprise

And place it in a faculty 

“Do this” “Do that” “Don’t think this way”

Textbooks are in front of me

If I questioned what they say

“When you grow up you’ll see”

So the dreams stayed below

They held on to this story

Entertaining they would grow

Some just held more glory

When I grew to be a woman

I found a love I though loved me

From the pool of all humans

This I though incredibly

To the world 2 daughters added

The dream was not quite real

Something broke and separated

The dream and pain I feel

There was no time to get over

When baby needs you more 

I just packed it on my shoulders

And dreams I though “what for?”

In this harsh reality

I could not imagine

What my child was going through

When daddy was a dragon

I the mother standing here 

Did once have a dream

I the child from my youth

Summoned from her queens

I may not know what it is like

To live in in two households

The only thing that I could do

Was help with what unfolds

Precious daughter asked of me

How could I do this deed

Broke my heart again in two

And with this I did proceed…

“Oh my darling I love you

I never asked for this

What kind of mother would I be

If abuse I did dismiss”

To this little child of mine

A daughter who will grow

I only tried to show her

It mattered that she know

To find a love unlike my own

A better one for her

I had to be a daddy too

And somehow keep love pure

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” How I live...Embracing Dignity My professional experience is disbursed across industries from financial services and sales to that of personal and emergency care.
