“In the mind that likes
To justify
To dismiss the If 
Is to know the Why”

“If” I know
That I am Just..
Do I don’t know
That I don’t trust
If “if’s” don’t exist
Unless I try
Then how can I
Most justify?
I need to believe
There is a reason
For all the things
I faced in liv’n
For every day
And occurrence
That I survived
Found endurance 
For all the heartache
Mental health
Life with loss
Hardships in wealth
Nothing seemed
To make much sense
Until I tried
And gave “if’s” a glance
With nothing to lose
And hope in disparity
I found some light
Gave my life to charity
For giving it back
And letting all go
The reasons became
Just “if’s” to know
To do and not fear
Give and not take
All situations
Were learning mistakes
And now that I know
That to love my own I
Some “if’s” that existed
I cannot justify
For every roadblock
That I come across
I found a reason 
To get up and walk 
I found my own heart
And found here the beat
To hold my head up
And cross every street
When I didn’t know
I had a chance
The “if only” in mind
Would start to dance
If I had a reason
I needed to see
That without the if’s
I’m really just me
To think without I
And not self discuss
Surely my mind
Was not with us
For my mind in me
With my heart nearby
My body responded
And did not die 
I found my control
And self love I did
Not every thought
Was mine to live
If to be unhappy
Was all that I knew
What made it just
Was not knowing what’s true
In my return
After giving the if’s
I just found reason 
To what I would give
If I give it back
If I had hope 
If I had faith
If I could cope
To justify
The many reasons
So many lies 
We believe in 
To be in your just
And know you’re one
Beware the if’s
And where they come from 
No one is just 
For if we were 
And this is just
When if’s are obscure 
A spirit is pure
When born again
There is no rejection
If you give it to Him
To live without
No more or less
The universe 
To you will address
Provide in hope
Give to your faith
Claim your if’s
And forgive mistakes
The directions are given
For where you must go
When you just do
And the if’s let go

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.
