I knocked on your door

I rang the doorbell

I was here for some time

And then I moved on

I sat on the steps

And looked at my phone

I called your number

In front of your home

Sometimes we walk

And meet in the street

We see much more

Looking up from our feet

I searched the place

That you liked to hang

But when I was there

My cellphone rang

Excitement exploded

I was quick to recover

But faster than lightning

Was shatter discovered

I was deflated

The caller true

I ignored it

It wasn’t you

I did not know

Nor could I see

The process that was

And meant to be

So up from my crouch

I stretched my leg

Friendships are done

If we have to beg

Ignorance defence

Is my attribution

Ego did seek

To find a solution

It’s pointless to hurt

When you don’t know

Why they left

Or had to go

The best remedy

To help me move on

Was to know that I did

All I could have done

I held out my hand

I showed up too

I tried to help

I did and continue

The purpose here

The value in we

To each other must show

This dignity

To awake every day

I no longer dismiss

The reason I’m here

In all of this

No fee do I ask

No payments received

I share as I care

And I believed

Now I keep walking

From past to the future

What makes the now live

Is just feeling better

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.
