We all need each other a little more now‼️

#Business needs to step aside. #Health matters first‼️


Staying at #home was something I was already doing… 

now that I should stay home… it feels more restricted…

What was before and how we were

Is gone for now and is no more

What is ahead and how we will

Is what will be and what’s in store

What we do now

And then again

Matters somehow

If we refrain 

So many are affected

Not only the infected

What has interjected

Can no longer be rejected

The people over there

Across the sea somewhere

Were only in my prayer

But breathing the same air

The news and all reports

Across the major ports

Was varied in all sorts

But carried on passports

The flux of people grew

It’s worse than common flue

The sick they could not chew

And started dying too

Somewhere a week ago

I never thought of this

And how I live today

There’s no denying this

We only know what we are told

Beware of who is telling

The panic, fear and shivers

Does not help if you are yelling



In days of isolation

There’s just nowhere to go

There is a brand new meaning 

For all who we love so

I have felt the devastation

I have witnessed on the news

The dire needs of people 

And how they now must chose

When we look around

And no one’s in the room

Are we ok alone

Or buried in a tomb

I have this apprehension

But something makes me think

This world that we live in

Can change within a blink

The oceans and their deepest

Secrets in the seas

Why do I have to know

Oh God just help me please

The world that I lived in

Was heading here so fast

People didn’t listen

And the devil likes his laugh

Who tries to change our nature

And some do fill their pockets

When all that really matters

Are the people in heart lockets

The time it takes to travel

Just became much longer

The family that you love

You need to make you stronger

The places where you work

And the things you had to do

The doors are all closing

In order to save you

The theories and the stories

The many accusations

Everybody’s listening

And ceasing demonstrations

All we thought important

All we thought we knew

And now we all are fighting

I see the fear here too

The roads and the rush

For people to get home

Are easy cruising rides

Some respite for ozone

The manufactured sectors

Are reluctant but obey

Healthcare service workers

Keep working night and day

The fear for what we love

The hope in our heartbeat

It’s not getting easier

There’s no one on the street

So really pay attention

This world that you live in

Nothing’s going to matter

If this battle you give in

The weapons that you need

Are without a crime

We need to keep our distance

And give a little time

No germ can be infected

But infection likes to tour

Don’t be the transportation

And thus you will endure

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.
