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” 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.
