That first breath

Sudden flutter

Body spasms

Cries shudder

Just responding

To the the world

Oh why out here

Is it so cold

For some of us

Our births were fine

Others though

Were out of line

To a mother

Who is loving

Little babies

Most becoming

For some beings

Who weren’t planned

From the start

They are damned 

Who are these people

Making love

Little babies

They don’t think of?

If it happens

You can choose

But in the end

You both lose

If life to you 

Is so sacred

Who are you 

Stop the hatred

When you admit

It is satirical

Your birth alone

Is a miracle

All the words

In the first years

Are the thoughts

Repeat for years

In all the progress

And development

Who raises you

Is your incumbent 

Who does teach you

Should want more

Than what was handed

From before

A hundred years

A million fools

People are forced

With many rules

What do we know

And what we’re told

But do we speak

And act so bold

That fear rejection

Denies much truth

To every parent

We want proof

When they don’t know

And refuse you

They manufacture

Ignorance too

And so repeating

It continues

Closed minds of leaders

Ignore these clues

The little hearts

That beat in you

Mother’s arms

Hold like glue

Fathers fear 

And want obeying

No child of theirs

Shall stop praying

But in the midst

Of broken ordinance

Nothing goes

To accordance

When laws stay put

And do not change


The mind’s exchange

The little babes 

That leave their nest

Arrest the world

With eagerness

Until that time

On that one day

The laws of old

Will kill their way

For who you are

And where you’re from

Will determine

What is done

In this world 

They want authentic

Then ridicule

When you announce it

When you speak truth

It fires with power

And greedy people

Want more each hour

Out of the mouths

Of innocents

Words outlive

From deaths moments

Minor crimes


The one who kills

Is the meaner

Let’s be real

Promote domestic?

I find this rather

Just pathetic

When it’s unjust

It takes a movement 

So many laws

Need improvement

This is why

It’s happening

When after learning

You don’t do a thing

I question freedom

Look at the rules

Am I but one

Of many fools?

That heartbeat

That pumps in you

At some point

You must grow into 

When you were born

You were told too

But as you die

You ask what did you do

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.
