Out of the blue

Into the red

Just right now

You froze in bed

Empty hands

Blank expression

Feeling lost

Like depression

Cannot move

Unseen force

Brain’s command

Lost it’s course


On your back

This feels just like

A heart attack

Heavy chest

Air compressed

In a coffin

Laid to rest

What is this?



Teary eyes

Serious pressure

Crushing fist


Stamps persist

All the view

Is the same


You remain

In a moment


All you had

Thrown to sea

You can swim

But now your drowning

Panic attacks

Your smile now frowning

To feel expression

On your face

To match the heart

This is grace

When you fear

You cannot do

This is your mind

Telling you

Were you warned

Does it matter

What right now

Can you do better

Close your eyes

It’s not dark

Deep inhale

From core to heart

Like the breeze

In the air

It takes some time

To get there

Nerves that rattle

They need soothing

Equal breathing 

Is improving

For calm to find

Your heart’s domain

Control your breath

It heals pain

There is a process

Thought’s vacation

Belief and trust


After this 

To stay strong

Remember breath

And keep it long

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.
