Try On The Tough


It’s rather crude to say it this way, but the fact is…it’s just the plain truth.

What we do consider our moments of pain are in fact just times when there’s something to gain.

Whenever we fall or bend at the knee,

We grope for the answers, we beg and we plea.

It’s just so fruitless to beg at the door

… of the keepers of secrets and so much more.

We don’t know the answers, and have no quick solutions.

But we do have the makers of some radical fusions.

It’s not my intent to speak out of line.

It’s completely in tune with my inner Devine.

There is always the pain, so deep and uncanny,

That tortures beyond all nook and cranny.

Its power is held by those who that do grasp.

Never let go and held by a clasp.

The chains are so heavy, the heart has to pay,

Whenever we feel and think this way!

Oh down in the dumps, betrayed by our friend.

Never this life do you want to end.

It’s there in this hold your story behold.

It’s time to release and use your own grease.

Slip out of the squeeze and choking bond

Muster the will, stretch further beyond.

The child inside knows just what to do.

Whenever it stands in front of you.


Just listen to the voice inside of you.

The whispers now scream of what to do

It doesn’t matter what anyone said.

You are alive and own your own head.

What you do conceive as what is the truth

Just shows it’s a friend to your own sleuth.

Never compare or crudely despair.

You are your own boss and can refill your loss.

It’s no laughing matter, this I agree,

But whatever you do, release and be free!


This pain in your heart is your jurisdiction

You own the thoughts that you are thinking

There you reign, your sovereignty

At your command and authority.


So put on your armour, stand and be ready

The battle will start and it will be heavy

The forces supreme, they will deny

But you have the rule in your own eye


If all I have said means nothing to you

It’s quite alright if you won’t listen too

But be as it may, you did read this far

And you never left wherever you are


If there’s just one thing that I do know

There’s nothing to deny it ever be so

Just try the tough on and I will bet

Much later on, you won’t regret!


“Last year I remember

And now I forget,

For it doesn’t matter

If I don’t regret.”

I am a deep thinker, lover of thoughts, and 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 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 nickname is Op and they are my own quotes representing a moral doctrine belief system. Thus...Op+ism=Opism. #opism. 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. I realize that it is really difficult to live with certain discomforts, to stay calm despite the presence of certain problems that cause pain. But we must strive, develop the awareness that whatever happens maybe even to have the opportunity to bring out all our potential.
    Well then the exhortation to really look for all the possible positive sides of every situation, even if the situation makes us suffer, and concentrate on those, make them grow.
