The human hand
That held me down
Wanted me to
Sink and drown

Under the surface
I was sinking
No longer had
A mind to think in

Held by you
When I was under
Your hateful soul
And water pressure

Here somehow
I was gone
To survive
My death was done

Nothing felt
Like anything
The song in me
Did not sing

In the silence
A mermaid sees
And helps recover

When in the sea
Of deepest blue
There she is
Alone with you

If there is air
Inside of you
There is a chance
That you’ll get through

If there’s a mermaid
In your view
There is a thought
To live in you

Figments from
Handed down
For generations

But if they were
A myth or true
Is this not hope
Inside of you?

Thunder loud
Upon the sea
Lightning strikes
Inside of me

Beneath the surface
My eyes open
I felt pain
Mermaid has spoken

To the hand
That held me down
Almighty waves
I will not drown

In my peace
A tidal wave
Swept away
I am saved

When you’re gone
I will swim
Return my love
To me within

Mermaid beauty
In my mind
Revealed to me
My life to find

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.
