Classroom rows 

And cubicles

Nothing grows

Cells refuse

Where you sit 

And what you’re told



Every day

The same thing

Never question


At your desk

Or on the road

All you do 

Is what your told

In your heart

You gave up

Swallow from

The coffee cup

Sour milk

Is disguised

Darkened circles

Baggy eyes

Your performance

On the stage

Was discarded

In a rage

News don’t matter

It’s all fake

Why the bother

Not your mistake

What’s on screen

All encrypted

Your big brother

He’s inflicted 

Every second 

Of the day

Nothing in you

Likes to stay

Every week

Always this way

You only do this

For your pay

Do you want more

Than this cell


And better still

Is your commute

Killing you

Is there much more

You want to do

Are you at home

Alone with you

Working more

With less to do

What do you want

What does it take

How can you make it

Feel more great

Is your head

Owned by you

When you can’t think

Of nothing new

When that idea

You did have

When your brain

And mind did laugh

How come they stopped

Why did it end

What happened to

Your heart and friend

This here thought

Inside of you

Wants to buy

You something new

The best investment

Is yourself

So don’t ignore

What you do well

All the time 

Let’s just face it

Not believing

You have wasted

Take that thought

And energy

Start to do

And you will see

Greater value

In yourself

Higher returns

When you do well

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.
