After This is Over

To every single human

I share with all my heart

For every single thought

There has to be a start

 

What makes us think beyond

The world that we live in

All the love and joy

And every single sin

 

We all have a view

And only some will share

It happens every second

Conversations are out there

 

Every word that’s uttered

Is valued by the speaker

Some are most profound

While others are the weaker

 

In our minds we are alone

We search and look around

Looking hard to find

We seek a common ground

 

Something to hold onto

Something to believe

Something to give reason

Something to achieve

 

We need a solid base

A foundation where to stand

Some are afraid to lose

And fear change to understand

What works for other beings

May not work well with you

Everyone is different

Your life is needed too

 

Sometimes we need a rest

From leading in ourselves

A time to take a break

And let others lead as well

 

The thing that makes it smart

Is knowing you have will

Not everyone is climbing

Up the same big hill

 

The cracks along the way

Will allow you to slow down

As long as you keep going

It’s not over when you frown

 

Everyone’s a climber

Not everyone can climb

In humanity together

We have to stand in line

 

There is a time to process

And understand it all

Accepting there are moments

From this climb that we will fall

 

Expect to lose your grip

Anticipate the fall

This is where you learn

And find you most of all

 

Everyone is climbing

Some are in a rush

Just let them be

They too will learn from this

 

After this is over

What will happen next

Does it make a difference

If no lesson here did fix

 

So if I were to say

And address Humanity

After this is over

Did I become a better me?

I am a deep thinker, lover of thoughts, and 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 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 nickname is Op and they are my own quotes representing a moral doctrine belief system. Thus...Op+ism=Opism. #opism. 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.

  1. Oh, Paula, I love this poem so much! This section especially resonated with me “The thing that makes it smart Is knowing you have will Not everyone is climbing up the same hill.” Yes, indeed. Some people are having their lives turned inside out by this pandemic and others of us are experiencing something different than a full implode. Maybe we already had a bunch of those before this juncture. I’m actually not certain there’s an “after this is over.” Not certain the virus won’t always be with us…Like the plants that came from other places that are not indigenous. Maybe we’ll learn to co-exist with the virus, to not have the virus take so many lives or sicken so many people. Maybe that will be the “after.” Maybe we’ll learn how important touch is and emotional health and mental health, and wholeness. Maybe we’ll embrace with deeper understanding- what has human beings thrive. I love your final question–Did I become a better me?
    Beautiful poem that sparked many thoughts here that I’ve now poured out of me. Thank you so much for sharing your poetry, your inspiration with all of us as it obviously got me thinking and feeling!! 🙂 I appreciate you, Paula!!

    • Laura, thank you. Even if it wasn’t the virus. I too apply this to any turbulent situation. Some of us are hit so hard and fast we fall hard. We are shaken and rattled, some easily get up, some have no means and are pulled even deeper. The weight of the world is the heaviest when it’s all on your back and you are eating dirt. The tools are not always in our belt…we thirst and the brain comes up empty…the mind races .. it is the heart that sends the cup of hope that quenches that thirst. And when you are that thirsty..it is best to sip at the pace your domain can adjust to. We become stronger. Bit by bit we rise and then stand. The help is out there. We search, experiment with what works and keep drinking hearts potion of hope. We become a better version of ourselves. The next fall will happen, but we then know we can still drink….a lilltle quicker each time.
      I speak from experience and I am a professional faller…lol…but I’m also a master of getting up more.
      I’m cherishing all your words here Laura and enjoy reading your thoughts. I’m so captivated by your essence and huge heart that’s for sure. Keep shining that light. All our flashlights together will help light up the world!
      I appreciate you too. Thank you for bringing value to the table! Best menu item ever!
      Have a great weekend my dear! Love and light🙏🙏Paula

    • Laurie,
      Don’t know what glitch made my reply to Laura come here…sorry about that….

      Thank you so much for reading…
      You never know what is around the corner but hopefully we have more tools with how to cope.
      Patience is needed to trust the process as all things have to fill the course in what life has in store

      Thank you for replying

    • Thank you Jeff…
      Stays with me too…
      A great lesson to me is the difference between expectation and anticipation.
      It is in expectations there is pain and with anticipation there is more open for a world of possibilities. It’s not easy as we do have computing brains that deal out the same routine answers to repeated encounters… the open mind gives the brain a pinch and says…”look again” lol. Just my thoughts here

      I appreciate your viewing this and adding value to this conversation. It gives me great pleasure to be a contributor to such thoughts.

      Have a great weekend my friend🙏 Paula
