Chinese whispers

Telephone wires

What’s the truth

The mind enquires

Each time explained

The story alters

No one to challenge

And so it falters 

The whispers echo 

Through the years

Telling stories 

To our ears

The more they’re told

They rearrange

No one seems 

To see this change

Just like the gossip

You do hear

What is spoken

In your ear

Use your sense


Think your thoughts

They are free

What is real

From stories told

Is there truth 

From stories sold

Single statements

Truth tied in knots

What is fake

And what is not

The echos last

Through the centuries

Too many voices

From the gentries

You are told

From day one

What to believe

Until your done

It is in you

Second guessing

There is no other 

Your confessing

If you think

And speak your mind

Look for answers

You can’t find

You are fired

And opposed

Then expired

And disposed

Cannot think 

On your own


From your phone

When you discover

You can think

No other being

Gives a stink

In the magic

Tales of fairies

Sometimes it pays

To just be wary

Just keep asking

There’s more to why

It’s quite ok 

Until you die

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.
