Life will start and be most bright
We might think we’ve seen the light
But when a cloud of darkness sets
That part of life will leave regrets

A friend of mine who meant a lot
The world and more, or so I thought
We shared so many complex words
And never feared the charging herds

Oh happy was I to have a friend
Always there, a hand to lend
Side by side as friends should be
I never once thought about me

Until the day I was betrayed
I loved my friend and always prayed
But when she took another path
She left me standing in her wrath

I had no way to understand her
Nor her words of blatent slander
No more time in my daylight
It’s darkness now, like the night

There’re times in life we really care
And with this too we often share
When we know we are mistreated
We have to leave, but not defeated

We learn to walk and then to run
We keep on moving, never done
What you learn from friends now foes
What matters now is anything goes

So my friend and those who read
Be mindful of the acts of creed
Be true to self and never yield
Hold your faith within your shield

If there be truth we learn from mistakes
I often wonder how many it takes
For every friend that I do meet
I should really never play repeat

We the people of the nation
In all the world and creation
The greatest gift in humanity
Is a friend who grants you dignity



“The mistakes that are made 
From a past friend or two
Should never infer 
With those that are new.

It’s really unfair
And horribly true
To make a new friend
You must refresh and renew
This poem was revived from my childhood journal.
  I hope you enjoy. 
                You Beautiful People

“The residual elements of past friendships
 should not affect subsequent relationships.” #Opism

To live is to learn
To learn is to teach
Upgrading is necessary
When lessons are contrary
Do yourself the honour
Let love in you be thunder
When you feel the pain
know the sun will shine 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.
