It yelled at me
Amidst the night
Woke me up
With a fright

Screaming echos
From my sleep
Across the bed
The shadows creep

My eyes were closed
But I could feel
The strength of thoughts
Pierce like steel

The moonlit glow
Reflections dance
Leaves outside
Inside enhanced

Into my room
And tossed my cover
Open window
Where dreams enter

Soft and silky
Pillow speaks
Inside my head
Thunder peaks

Breathing in
The furrowed brow
Release the lines
Smoothing now

Stirred within
I hear the chant
Words are singing
Ignore I can’t

If I muster
From revere
I won’t lose
What sings in here

To my side
I turn my body
Who on earth
Wants to call me

The thoughts inside
I pushed away
But louder cries
Begged me to stay

“I came to you
From the land
In darkness hand

Write me down
I’m here right now
Before I die
Let me allow

Pick up the pen
I’ll write for you
You know the drill
It’s what we do”

My retreat
Was not working
And now alert
To hand networking

What started slow
Grabbed attention
And now the pen
On paper quicken

Words appeared
Upon the page
And once completed

Lying back
Upon the pillow
After sleep
Goodbye my fellow

Receding blaze
Thoughts depleted
This is the way
A writer sees it

In the morning
Sunny rays
Highlighted dust
Appears in waves

This enchantment
Sprinkles through
Reminds you of
It’s note to you

You reach over
Read the note
Without a sound
Your heart has spoke

Forget the time
Where there is darkness
In the night
Are many chances

The quiet mind
Is best acquainted
To the words
That help us make it

Inside ourselves
Observed by heaven
If you respond
To what’s given

There is a gift
For you to open
From dark moments
You can find hope in

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.
