When you give
You lend a hand
Not all receivers

We try to help
And reach out
Sometimes we yell
And start to shout

With the volume 
And the tone
It doesn’t help
When you moan

In your heart
Be as it may
There is love
That pleads this way

Feeling desperate
Spewing words
To hurting souls
They won’t be heard

Instead erase
Just breathe with them
Embrace the silence 
They will begin

Allow the one
Who looks at you
To find a reason 
To hold you too

If they are near
The doors of solace
They need the time
To just acknowledge

It’s hard to stand
And look down
Watching others
As they drown

Don’t walk away
It’s not a choice
Let them hear
Your peaceful voice

In this approach
They will condone
Another presence
They aren’t alone

You know the pierce
Of daggers sharp
You want to share
But do not harp

A padded pillow
Meant for rest
Soaked with tears
From the chest

Support is here
Helping too
Quiet pillows
Talk to you

As the wailing
Does decrease
Crying time
It will cease

Upon the skin
And cleaner eyes
Approach them now
They need this prize

A gentle touch 
And loving stroke
Subsides the sound
Retreating choke

Sent from silence
Soulful words
Never said 
But they have stirred

Later on 
After confusion
Without judgement
There’s profusion

Another life
Who shares with you
Grants you access
To share yours too

As you listen
In this silence
You can hear
The heartbeat sirens

Raw and loud
They become
And with yours too
All pain undone

Sacred people
And their souls
We’re not alone
When love shows

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.
