To the one
We first met
Inside her body
We were kept

To the man
We first loved
Who held our hands
This I think of

To the siblings
Out they came
Shared our homes
And our name

To the parents
And the uncles
Aunties too
With their bundles

Cousins close
And some so far
Other lands
To far by car

We do look up
And figure out
If we were blood
Without a doubt

Family secrets
We all have them
Some we find
There’s other kin

If we keep searching
We keep finding
Then there’s those
Who have no binding

Torn away
Unfaithful loves
Result this way

Family units
Defined for you
Are the family
That is not true

There are people
Who you live with
Then there’s people
Your life you’d give

A family where
You love and trust
Other people
Is a must

What is blood
You cannot change
But who you love
Can be arranged

No piece of paper
Or a name
Has any clout
In heart’s domain

Be grateful to
The blood that loves you
Honour those
Whose blood they give you


In honour of International Family Day‼️

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.
