“The place to dry tears
Is on the shoulder of years”


Do you want to cry
Are you sad and upset
Are you home all alone
Did you slam down the phone

Did it happen just now
Was it something said
Did a memory return
And replay in your head

Do you hold it all in
Or sob very loud
Whimper in sadness
Or just don’t allow

Are you responding
A goal you lost sight
Sink to the floor
Or put up a fight

Are you greatly lamented
And dare make a sound
Forever just haunted
As you look around

To curse as you yell
Is also release
If you allow this
What tears do you cease

A silenced moan
Will escape softly
Holding it in
Can be more costly

To not allow feelings
Is nothing to gain
What’s locked inside
Will try again

No one to talk to
Hurt and confused
Jailed in grief
Leads to the blues

There are others
In fact millions
At the same time
Crying for reasons

To suffer alone
We pay the dues
To share your tears
Really helps you

When no one is there
Remember who’s with you
The shoulders you own
And all they’ve been through

It’s not any wonder
To ask your God why
And then realize
Inside you he lies

Waiting for you
To find and discover
For He knows how
To help you recover

There is no cure
If you don’t cry
What takes time to love
Takes time to die

If held back in fear
This is not sorrow
The chains of burden
Hold down tomorrow

Embrace your nature
Allow your tears
They will soon dry
On the shoulder of years

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.
