Fast and furious

Always working

It keeps computing

Never stopping

A high alert

From the brain

Echos loud

It does complain

All of a sudden

It went still

Never before

It ran this drill

Not one command

That he repeated

Was answered too

Or completed

The brain in its manic

Just tried to compute

The heart felt panic

The mind was mute

His system crashed

Rebooting resisted

The mind was scoping

And heart arrested

Brain was frozen

Could not move

Without the files

No body to groove

Hé had ignored

One fatal question

Sent out before

From heart’s disposition

“If you slow down

And take a rest

Do you think

This would be best?”

Add to this

The brain’s confusion

Rapid thoughts

Mind’s ammunition

In a quote like phrase

It said to the brain

“It doesn’t make sense

If we don’t remain”

Taken aback

The brain was aghast

All of his work

And now this blast

Reference checks

Neurons on duty

Why take a rest

It was still early

With this statement

He tried to compute

The brain without choice

Just couldn’t dispute

For now he figured

He had to adhere

The machine he was working

Just needed some care

What now presented

Was crippling indeed

He was driving

With voracious speed

The heart and the mind

Were watching him now

He was told to slow down

And didn’t know how

The truth that they spoke

He thought he knew too

But for some reason

He ignored all they do

So many messages

Coming in fast

Brain looked to core

And finally asked

“If I should listen

And ignore other parts

Will you help me

Join mind and heart?”

Most powerful core

The one that unites

Spoke these words

And quoted the rights

“If you don’t listen

And continue this way

The work that you do

Will have nothing to say”

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.

One thought on “🗣🧠‼️A WORD FROM THE CORE‼️🗣🧠

    Dear Paula 🇨🇦 Goodman, this poem is very strong. So I stopped everything to read, then I read to understand. I saw three people talking, mind and heart giving information to the brain. This one sometimes feels very confident, has autonomy of his own. However, this time the situation is different, despite all the arguments involved. A fourth person joins this select group, the Wise man has come to decide, and everyone shuts up. In a flash I saw the judgment: “Remember also your Creator in the days of your youth, before the bad days come, and the years come to which you will say, I have no contentment in them.” It’s better to obey than to sacrifice! In fact, we all need the support of others. A proper word, pronounced in a time of adversity, can make a difference in history. 🙏🍁🕊️
