Never Say Never

If ifs don’t exist

And thoughts don’t either

Then what do I know

Mother nature’s a teaser

 

When what do I see

In front of me

Might not be real

And though I can feel

 

And when I do hear

A sound in my range

It calls out to me

And resonates strange

 

So I try to speak

But my mouth is dry

The water in me

Was used up to cry

 

So when I lay down

And nod off to sleep

The brain continues

This body to keep

 

Brain tends to your needs

And hates being disturbed

So it summons your heart

And says a few words

 

“I’m busy all day

I stay up all night

But you dear heart

You have a fight

 

This human we know

And live in their shell

I have an answer

I need you to tell”

 

Heart was intrigued

And perked up a bit

It couldn’t refuse

When brain had a fit

 

Brain had no notion

Of what the heart felt

It just had a message

From the mind that had dealt

 

Ignoring the mind

Brain turned to the heart

Gave it a kick

And told it to part

 

Heart was hurt

And knew how to feel

And brain did not know

That all this was real

 

Heart turned away

And did what was told

The brain continued

But mind was not sold

 

It snapped into action

And woke the host up

It’s time to fight back

And fix this break up

 

Do not believe

And always beware

Of all that you see

And all that you hear

 

Ifs don’t exist

And thoughts are not real

Oh little heart

I know how you feel

 

The heart and its pieces

Looked up to the mind

Being so open

It always was kind

 

Unknown to the brain

The need for hope sped

It was so important

Or brain would be dead

 

The brain was too busy

To notice the fuss

As host was in need

To function and thus

 

The mind in control

Took care of the heart

With belief and some faith

It glued back each part

 

When heart was stronger

It summoned the brain

To which it responded

And lectured in vain

 

“Oh brain you must know

And compute this forever

In times of emotion

It’s mind over matter

 

I know you work hard

And search for the answer

But ifs are the thoughts

You must never say never.”

I am a deep thinker, lover of thoughts, an aspiring 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.

No, never say never as you just never know. Your poetic mind is in full view.

Laura Staley

What a poetic dialogue you’ve captured between the brain/mind and the heart! Paula. And, of course, it made me curious what do your bowels say-your gut? Very thought and heart provoking. Truly creative. I get to read your poem, again. Layers of richness that a first pass is like only placing the tongue on some frosting without realizing there’s a delicious layered cake to experience. :) Thank you so much for sharing this!!

Larry Tyler

I love your poetry and say yes to your beautiful words.
