To know the name

Of what is life 

It’s like a game

And carving knife

Who deals the cards

With her guards

Queen of hearts

Decides all parts

A thousand deals

And court appeals

Is a fraction

Not subtraction


Of the deal

More than atoms

This is real

Oh the many 

Born before

More to come

For us adore

Measured quantum’s

Are the vacuum

Love and time

On our mind

The hand your dealt

Is what you’ve felt

And when you bet

On love you get

No deal is bad

Nor Leningrad

For what remains

Without the names

No two hands


All alone

Chilled to the bone

Learn the game

Before the fame

It’s not easy

Hearts are queasy

To play this card

Love is hard

When you have lost

Body frost

To know the name

Of this game

It’s really fierce

When love is pierced

If you don’t know

The answer yet

To love below

The knife is wet

After the game 

When you are done

Take your heart

And start to run

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.
