I can’t describe the pain I feel
I want to think it isn’t real
This heavy feeling in my chest
One so weighted and depressed

My heart is in me this I know
It’s no stranger to such sorrow
There are so many kinds of pain
And it keeps beating on again

I drove for miles to see his face
To say goodbye and plead for grace
The road was blank when I did drive
Until the time I did arrive

It’s not the fact he had to go
His mind was gone, he did not know
He left his body years before
He did not know us anymore

Although he was a body here
My Aunt beside him was his cheer
And when he smiled upon the day
There were some times he’d look her way

I cannot denounce the evidence
To support the minds own residence
But if you ask me what I think
I suspect there is a link

What mind he had kept character
But memory could not register
And when he left the world today
I knew his mind had found its way

In memory of Uncle Tony: Anthony B. DALY

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.
