The heart is whole

At our birth

It travels hard

When on earth

It loves


It ignites

Many fires

It’s humble truth

Often yields

Like poppies blow

In Flanders fields

The pain endured

Nothing matches

Many scars

From all the scratches

It always welcomes

People new

It always loves

The past ones too

We cannot seem

To shelter it

And yet we try

To protect it

What the heart

Holds onto

Paves the way

To those in you

Many voices

In your head

Some you like

And those you dread

Never fear

It’s just ok

All you feel

Has a say

Teachers learn

Leaders follow

Heart is love

To not is a battle

So much time

And much commotion

Life goes by

In one swift motion

Opened eyes

Every time

Within a blink

It leaves the mind



Or is it just


A broken heart

Stinging fierce

Wants to die

It’s been pierced

For those of us

Who keep the matches

Keep on lighting

The hearts with scratches

There are spaces

Between raindrops

It takes time

For all the teardrops

Allow all pieces do their grieving

Feel the loss and then restart

Love resumes again once more

With Scratches on the heart

When pain is less

And you feel better

Write your heart

A true love letter

Write to heart

As if you knew

How it feels

When it’s in two

As you write

You will find

Your own words

Can be so kind

To be so gentle

And so raw

Your little self

Likes jigsaws

They are delighted

And so eager

Pretty pieces

Beautiful picture

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.
