A multitude of feelings will invade

And make us think of all we’ve paid

Across the earth tears will roam

Opening doors within heart’s home

Locked inside the heart so deep

Are the secrets we all keep

We run away from dire truth

Forget the songs from our youth

In times of sorrow and of rain

Tears allow release of pain

What is allowed to exist

Concealing thoughts might resist

To feel emotion in the raw

Introduces soul to all

What is repressed

Sometimes won’t rest

When you are ready

And more steady

There will be moments

Allow condolence

Day after day wethers on

Every morning with the sun

What we allow is the keeper

What we ignore just cuts deeper

We rise and fall many times

Sing sad songs with the rhymes

As we wail and sing aloud

Good grief to hearts is allowed

With every echo from the past

No need to run, they will not last

Upon your knees you will find

A soothing cry will help your mind

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” How I live...Embracing Dignity 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.

  1. Great words my dear friend. Written for the times. One has to think of the families who lost loved ones to COVID19 and their extended family of friends never got to say goodbye. Sometimes that final goodbye for this Earth is needed. In some ways tears help the heart heal. Gives it a much needed release. You pretty much nailed it with the words “Good Grief”. Wednesday marks the 4th anniversary of my Mother’s passing. Mother never wanted any tears. She so enjoyed laughter & humor, even to the end.

    1. The s stories are pouring out of those who have died..heartbreaking and full of agony.
      My Uncle barely passed …and then this.
      I was able to celebrate his funeral…but with #Covid19 people now do not get this.
      Grief is being challenged and people don’t know what to do…
      A good heart wrenching wail is sometimes waiting… it’s ok to let it out..
      It’s so great you remember your mother’s joy🙏
      Grieving allows us to shed the heavy loss we feel and makes room for those #happy memories to stay.
      Lol. Oh Op sent #Kentucky soon 🇨🇦 #Canada weather it seems .. cool and sunny here…
      Have a wonderful day my dear🙏🙏🙏🙏
