To early to rise
To late to sleep
What time is it
For me to keep

I was already dressed
This time yesterday
But now I don’t care 
What to wear today 

It’s more depressing
To wake up in the dark
And now the day says
Get up and start!

The clock on the table
The machines that are timed
Makes me feel 
Like I have no mind

I’m told what to do
By the laws of man
But nature tells me
Don’t fight what I am

What makes no sense
To me in my head
Are the rules we are following
From those who are dead

What’s set in motion
Might’ve helped once
At what point in time
Do we start to denounce

With the concept of time
That never stays still
Why are we repeating
The same old drill

Its best to leave
And just keep going
For nothing is real
There’s truth in knowing

Feeling off balance
Plays in your head
With the concept of time
There is much dread

It’s the world we live in
And measurement to
There’s always a deadline
In front of you 

To erase the thoughts
Of what time it is
Sometimes we achieve
Much better like this

The best to be
Cannot be measured
When happiness is
Currently pleasured 

Alas but we must
Rely on the clock
For to survive outside
Is part of the plot

Is time running out
The tick of anxiety
What lies ahead 
Is always infront of me

What’s done is done
The sound of the tock
There’s no turning back
Forget and block

It’s a matter between
The past and future
No document of time
In this I am after 

Before every moment
After the thoughts
There is no time
Where there is naught 

The tick of the clock
The rhythm of time
To disappear here
Is where I am fine

But alas I must leave
And join the clock lovers
It’s great to just “BE”
And throw back the covers


“In the past tense
The clock repeats
For every ticktock
The future released

Without the sound
Or something to treasure
Pure happiness lives
In the absence of measure”

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.
