All of a sudden
Jolted bolt
I’m awake
And revolt

Sudden fear
Soaking wet
I’m afraid
All this sweat

In my room
Facing you
There you are
In my full view

Oh no you don’t
Come after me
I can’t stand

After all
I’ve come so far
At this hour
There you are

I want to scream
But I’m too scared
There’s no escaping
This is hard

Why did I wake
Why can’t I sleep
Where is my soul
For God to keep

I was so fine
For many day
And then you call
I hear you say

Oh the fool
Inside my heart
Wanted to
Believe your part

But now I know
You are a danger
Once I married
A total stranger

Unknown to me
Your evil blows
How my heart
Remembers so

And I alone
Know your secret
You try so hard
To make me keep it

Oh the sweat
Has chilled me now
I look around
And wonder how

I was not
In bed at all
But face to face
With evil’s call

What I know now
And didn’t then
You are not real
You’re fake again

To the anguish
All the pain
And anxiety

In my head is me
I’m done with this
It will not be

I have spoken
I have said
You cannot hurt
What is dead

I stopped recalling
All you did
And now I’m living
Without your bid

Shivers let me
Feel my skin
It really helps
To see your sin

For now I know
And can abide
No more of this
And I won’t hide

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.
