There is a fear
That manifests
Beneath the robe
Of depressed

Here it sits
Ready to pounce
It never stops
It won’t announce

When you are low
And hitting walls
Slowly fear
Starts it’s crawl

As you fall
It catches you
It’s hungry fangs
Dig right through

What flesh protects
Is exposed
The razors edge
Releases blows

You can’t control
The heavy burden
Cutting deep
The evil sermon 

Pressure here
Less to feel
But when you cut
It is real

The ground becomes
The tempting bed
Where you can’t move
Your aching head

Why get up
It’s just no use
To stand again
And see abuse

Then the fear
It thinks it’s done
No rebates

Until the final
Breath is drawn
Something else
Is going on

Mighty winds
From angel wings
Swoop to you
And voices sing

To those who know
And see the light
They grab the hope
From Angels flight

To those without
Their burden was
Too much to bear
They need God’s love

They did not, 
Choose to undo
The fear in them 
Was stronger too

Do not condemn 
What you don’t know
We do not choose
When we must go

It’s predetermined
And for certain
Only God
Draws the curtain

Every child
He does love
Those with no one
Rise above

To teach us all
And evermore
To add some value
To those so dear

Every being
Has potential
It’s not always

What’s in the mind
Can be lost
Without the guide
The heart is tossed

Without love
To hold and cherish
Hope is the last 
It too will perish

If you should ask
If one is well
There’s always more 
For them to tell

But what we need
All of us
Is to accept 
That life is rough

We need to listen
And not to yell
Silent suffering
Murders well

Without a hope
When fear creeps in
Losing life
Is not a sin

If perhaps
You think I ramble
But when you fall
I will scramble

Only know
That one day
The fear you have
May come to stay

At these times
The cloak is heavy
But with others
It’s less scary

When you get up 
And you escape
My dear your cloak
Is now your cape


“Do not condemn 

What you don’t know

We do not choose

When we must go”

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.
