Oh this test

The longest true

Living here

And loving too

It seems to me

We all do fail

Sometime this love

Makes us wail

The many woes

And broken hearts

Testing time

And then departs

When to agree

Or walk away

Never knowing

What to say

To see the view

From other eyes

Why do we look

Up to the skies

To love is first

And trust will follow

Touchy subject

My dear fellow

Many try to


Rush right in

And cannot wait

Others wait

And then forget

Feel great loss

And much regret

Some they learn

There is a price

They want change

So much advice

When they see

What love can do

And the magic

They want too

Not all loves

Are meant to be

But it is best

To keep it free

Free from others

Who abused

Free to new ones

Fresh amuse

The test one fails

Is not a zero

What you learn

Is your hero

To take that test

And review

Allows you access

Better view

Then reapply

With your next test

This time you’re better

Give life your best

There is no perfect

Way to say

The test of life

You have to play

When you feel

You’re being tested

Walk away

And just digest it

There is no score

To make it perfect

But if you learn

It is worth it

To give is better

It pays more

When you lose

That perfect score


“When you feel

You’re being tested

Walk away

And just digest it”

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.

  1. LOVE the most intriguing four letter word in the dictionary for sure. I think we’ve all asked what is this thing called LOVE? When it’s good there’s nothing like it, when it becomes a challenge there’s nothing worse. I so agree that love isn’t always meant to be. I think it takes time, you can’t rush it. It can grow. Sometimes it takes a lifetime to find this mysterious thing called love. Sometimes it’s at first sight. Really great one here Ms. Paula! Well done as always! A lot of thought and experience penned here.
