I look at others and I do see
What I don't have inside of me
I'm all alone beside myself
Atop a wooden empty shelf

I look below an endless pit
I look above and feel misfit
To the left and then the right
I try so hard with all my might

Are there things that I must know
Is there something I must show
Will I fit in & be ok
It takes me time to find my way

There is a reason here I perch
Upon this shelf of carved out birch
And when I wonder what’s in store
Something inside just says there’s more

There's room for you upon this shelf
And in return you’ll find yourself
Far better yet, don’t disregard
Join me now for this is hard

I'm lonely yes but just a bit
I'll wait some more until you hit
A point inside there’s no return
Oh my your here! How fast you learn

A friend just sat right next to me
Someone who believes in me
The shelf so lonely now is shared
A friend with me for whom I cared

This friend of mine was wise and smart
Applauded me & touched my heart
Dear little book upon this shelf
It’s time to share and nothing else

Your pages are your own to write
You have the answers, you were right
Never let the cover fool you
Be yourself in all that you do

Big book in all its history
Said these words to little me
Inside of you is something real
And It’s ok...to say how you feel


“Pick up a book and start to read 
Sometimes that’s all you really need”

Beautiful People🙏🌷
You Are👉A Human WORTH Being

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.
