To be a soldier in ruined fields
That wind once swept the green
The guns cry, never yield
Those winds are never seen
Soldier’s’ eyes are immensely searching
The hills beyond are pale
Smoke of pain everywhere is rising
The soldier cries forth a wail
Anguish temper leaves his lips
How dare the other do this
The bullet in his side; it rips
This soldier my brother, I will miss
Cannons blasting through the air
Have killed the men we love
Those soldiers lying everywhere
Are prayed for up above
(PC 1986: From the archives of an empath)
I thank the stars for my dear freedom
I’m overwhelmed and think of those
Who also marched the same twilight
And now they lie in rows

To lay down a life so I can have mine
The selfless gift of youth
There’s no greater way to show love
When risking for charity’s truth

I want to sing with all my heart
And thank you for all of this
Because of you dear soldier
I  find my burdens less

The stars I see in the sky at night
Are the same once seen by them
They shine, guide and twinkle bright
And remind me of freedom again

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.
