You are human
And alone inside you
But out in the world
Others depend on you

Every man for himself
Was never the way
Even though,
It helped some days

When we fend for ourselves
Who are we fighting for
To fall on our knees
And feel like there is no more

What are we grasping for
Why are we wasting time
When there is no more
Will there be hope to find

It’s this life we are in
And a feeling of love
When there is loss
Then you think of

When it’s gone
Or is lost
The one holding on
Pays a great cost

For hundreds of miles
And a thousand few men
If it’s not you
Then it was your friend

Where do you go
How do you feel
Standing still
Facing what’s real

The life that you knew
The one that you had
There’s really no reason
For you to be sad

This life is a lesson
You sail your own ship
Living’s a test
There’s only one trip

Oh rare indeed
Is a wrath so apparent
Oh mother of God!
Does He have a parent?

Consumed by the ocean
With no where to wave
Without any lesson
Your life you can’t save

In all the intelligence
To ever have thought
There’s simply no way
Emotion is taught

The fire in passion
The force of love
The tears that flow
And hope to think of

Without all of this
For the cost of a life
To mean nothing at all

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.
