You said you were coughing and that’s ok

I understand what you didn’t say

Dead air amidst the telephone line

Oh daddy please, those tears are mine

I called you on the telephone

Another crisis in my zone

Oh how I’m grateful for you Da

And mother too, my parents ya

You’ve helped me in so many ways

For many years and many days

And when I’m in a deeper hole

I thank the Lord with all my soul

The tortured days that I went through

I never once revealed to you

I let you judge and criticize

I was so pained in my demise

There are some things we cannot say

It hurts for me to think this way

For if I told you all I knew

I felt that you would blame me too

And yet I call when I’m at mercy

You know not all of that which hurts me

My choked up tears just say enough

Your silence too was really tough

Life’s never perfect of this I’m sure

We often face the Devil’s lure

I know I’ve held a lot inside

It’s now in God that I abide

I look at all the good you’ve done

Oh daddy since my life begun

Dear mummy too, I love so dear

With both of you, I’ll make this year

And since we’re on this special topic

Take these words from my hearts pocket

Don’t cry for me but hold my hand

I am who I am, Please understand

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.
