Dear People… What Say You?

In times like this
We are forced to address
The inherent disability
That exists in humanity

My tears are flowing
My heart is showing
Can’t stop crying
I’m really just trying

For a world United
We all are slighted
This is a mistake
What more can we take

Covid crisis
Lockdown ties us
Inside heart fights
For candle lights

To burn the fire
Of Human desire
What we do miss
We all know this

Violent murder
To the spirit
Acting out
People do it

Is not with it

I’m mortified
Not petrified
I’m not mean
For want to scream

When actions feel
It’s more than real
What’s human in me
With you, can see

War becomes

What of the people
Needing a steeple
The perk of a leader
To keep it together

The task is to great
In creeps the hate
Disloyalty finds
The devil in minds

When chaos arrives
Hope must arise
To stand out alone
Increases your zone

At the core of the ball
Is humanity, that’s all
From the centre of earth
Your Dignity is birth

There is no remorse
In the devil’s discourse
But removing the gag
Good tongues can wag

Annoyance is
A big distraction
Is acceptance

Killing time
Inside living

Feel the power
Of your goodness
Mighty people
Don’t ignore this

Allow the passion
And desire
Stop the mayhem
Process power

Know this I tell you
Love is within you
If we could start over
I’d be a Land Rover

Step on the gas
Cause a distraction
Start an explosion
And make it happen

The land far and wide
United together
A family with pride
Will last forever

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. My Paula… My treasured Paula… I cried loudly reading your magical words… 😭😭😭 Wish I could give you the warmest hug and that we could cry together in each other arms… The abundant love in your heart is priceless and so healing…💙💙💙

    I recorded this extract from Mark Manson’s work a couple of days ago. It’s a UNIVERSAL and TIMELESS message! It resonated so much that I felt I could have written it! This was my tenth trial, btw. I was too overwhelmed in the previous 9 attempts to be able to finish:

    • Hello Frank, it is fresh from the aftermath …
      Thank you so much for being here and taking the time to read
      I hope for many to see the light and keep us in our purpose for love and life.
      I really appreciate you my friend!

  2. Thank you Paula for caring and I hope you always keep sharing…
    omg you got me on a roll.

    If more people had your open heart and thought before speaking I think our world would be a better place.
    We know the power of words. They can mend and they can hurt; they can prevent a suicide; they can push one over the brink.

    As long as we don’t stop trying to unite and be kind we will succeed because something only fails when people give up.

    • Oh I like your roll Laurie,
      You are a spirit that is full of light here.
      The fact that the heart is more open…for after almost being completely broken. I found some hope to grab on to and along the way…it gathered momentum. It found more with others like you, and all the great people here too. With you I’m very incredibly thankful for finding it with Dennis and all the people here at Bizcatalyst360… truly thankful for you

      With the power of words….I was not afraid to speak anymore.

      Have a wonderful day my dear!
      Thank you! And bless you. Keep shining! 🙏😀
