Precious People

As I think about the years

There were too many tears

Whatever made me sad

Or even drove me mad

I felt something so strong

Since I was very young

There was always something different

I felt it might’ve been clairvoyant

Moments haunted my inner soul

Afraid I was and hid in a hole

What’s wrong with me I would think

Why in love did I sink?

My heart is breaking that I know

It is true I let the evil thoughts grow

Tortured and distorted they only grew

And day by day no one knew

I can see it all in retrospect

But never once did I reflect

What’s going on inside of me

Was not the quantum of reality

Oh precious people listen close

Try to live! Not overdose

I cannot clear the path for you

Just share my little thought or two

It’s amazing!!! There really is peace!

Let the breath out, that’s it; release!

Let the bells ring loud and clear!

You are now and you are here!

I’m sure we all have harboured guard

Let no one know you struggle hard

The love within the human race

Oh, precious people, it’s not a race

Life is letting matters be

Not running from reality

You have it in you; never fear

You are precious and very dear

All our lives we grow and learn

Mistreated; loved and always yearn

To know thyself can not be bought

Love yourself or live you cannot!

Even when you question you

See all that you say and do

Causes, effects, and emotionalism

Science cannot crack this prism!

So today I challenge all of you

Take some time just for you

Let that other side come in

Open the heart that you made dim!

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.
