It’s not easy
Some days are hard
I am aware
My life was marred

As I look 
And try to see
From yesterday
To infront of me

I have escaped
I have let go
The chains I wore
I cut them so

And yet I’m sad
And don’t know why
I am alive
I did not die

From my tortured
And flawed past
I am now here
It did not last

The times I was
So very tempted
The want to live
Or run right past it

What many years
Has robbed of me
I want them back
Now I am free

I realize here
As I write
When there’s less days
Then there are nights

Into the shadows
I must withdraw
Allow myself
This time to crawl

Remind myself 
That it’s ok
Forgiving is 
The only way

When I’m grey
I sit and face it
“I want to live”
This is my statement

I have to let
The feelings ride
It’s not good
To let them hide

If I can face
Another day
This is success
And love to sway

In the darkness 
I was blind
But now with light
I can find

That to recall
A bitter moment
Allowed me to
Release a poet

With the ink
Of blood red pain
I write the words
With loves flame

This helps me
Erase the time
Show the world
All can be fine

So if you think 
That it is easy
Sending hope
Keeps me busy

I had to start
I’ll fight for you
Just like I did
For my life too

The message here
Is not from me
A higher power
He writes for thee

Feeling low
Is optimistic
This is the time 
To find hope in it


“Feeling low
Is optimistic
This is the time 
To find hope in it”

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.

  1. Dear Paula 🇨🇦 Goodman another incredible inspiration from the poetess. Sometimes the emotions go beyond our expectations. There is a strong synergy here between those words and my days. This year has really been a box of surprises, some deep marks that still hurt, and other gratifying ones that came later. But when I stop all things, and read your poem, I always feel a strong energy welling up. There was a lack of definition about it, but today you made me see the answer: “I want to live”. Gratitude.🙏🌿🍂

    1. Oh bless your heart Antonio Roberto Freitas .. thank you so much. I know what you have shared with me and I am so proud of you. It’s incredibly hard to filter all the hard stuff…the more it comes pouring in…the more we feel buried, the weaker we feel. But the bottom line… the want to live….❤️🌷🌷. What it takes and how to move forward… priorities change and everything gets redefined the deeper you are. It is in the despair we are challenged with this #mentalhealth gateway of finding #hope in the face of death. Life is #love. It is human #nature to need it, want it …and give it. The triangle in the arrow’s direction…aims for the heart….
      I truly am glad I shared this one now my friend. Thank you. May this discovery be fuelled forward into a flame of abundance Bless you 🙏🙏🙏❤️🌷
