For many it is difficult and this is quite outstanding

Plenty of us are scattered and barely even standing

The many situations and life of circumstances 

Brings us to our knees and halts so many chances

The time you spend in kneeling 

Is naked and revealing

Humbled and at the mercy

For water when you’re thirsty

In this gripping time you may not be familiar

And now you see to suffer, is not for all so similar

To depend upon a system, or ask for some real help

Invites you to reflect on how others may have felt

You might have been a leader, or a working bee

And now you are just hoping, to feed your family

It’s nothing new to some, but it is new to you

And now you learn from them, there’s more that you can do

Reassessment of all wants, if they were really needs

You find what really matters and let go the many greeds

The time and all the effort, who was driving who

So many in society controlling over you

When you’re on your knees, begging is an option

Knowing what you have, is standing in your fortune

The life you try to fill with fussy little details

Means nothing to the eye, when all other else fails

The most compromising times, when you are at your worst

Are there to teach you things, and introduce the thirst

At first you mourn a loss and then you ask because

You thought you were in charge and now you feel the loss

No one can predict, a major transformation 

Its power is most likely, a divine intervention

When you see the light that shines in the darkness

You dust off your knees and faithfully find kindness 

Forgetting all your woes and knowing what you need

Life is not the same after believing does proceed

New tools you have to build and dig your way back out

The excitement you discovered will take away the doubt

It really takes a loss, to find you had a gain

There’d be no such thing as pleasure, if there was no pain

To think of falling down, as something so upsetting

It’s really there for you, to see what you’re forgetting


“When you’re on your knees

Begging is an option

When you use your feet

Standing is your fortune”

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” 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.
