When I was a girl
A very little one
I use to play with dolls
And have a lot of fun

I played with my sisters
All younger than me
I was the oldest one
After me were three!

Our parents give us love
They are our first guru
Every parent knows
That this is what we do

In memories retrieved
I like to see the good
It really feeds the heart
Where love is understood

As children are impressed
With how we raise our young
I really am amazed
When mothers we become

We often mimic ways
And echo many phrases
Years that pass with time
We repeat in paraphrases

“When I was young like you..”
“My parents use to say..”
“This is how it is..”
And “It is so cause I say!”

Until we have our own
We hardly really think
The words that we were told
Had power that would sink

So much we take for granted
We assume that all is fine
Until we lose a woman
Whose mother’s love did shine

Not everyone’s a mother
Not all are really great
But to all we have a mother
And birthing was her fate

The reasons for your birth
Are what you need to see
And hopefully your mother
Was not in captivity

Your Mother is a child
Of another mother
What was handed down
To her from another

We don’t have all the answers
But we do have a bond
And even in some absence
The heart holds this strong


Happy Mother’s day🌹🙏

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” 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.
