Let Me Be

Ugonna Wachuku  

 

Let me be gone 

now ... Silence! 

Silence of the 

grave ...

 

Life on this 

enchanting 

earth home! 

 

Humankind with 

heartless homes: 

 

Fading moments of my
awakening...

 

I walk through unknown

pathways and river banks.

 

The mind in me is still;
yet wandering through
uncharted landscapes 
and meadow sea shores.

 

This new day, I stare into
the clouds, hoping, wishing,
wondering if you'll let me be.

 

At night, I watch your stars
and moon; waiting, hoping.

 

Fading moments of my
awakening...

 

My journey has been a long
one. I have waited so long
in the eyes of human
recokoning.

 

I really keep wondering
whether you'll let me be.

 

Fading moments of my
yawning awakening...

 

My soul is heavy ladden.
My spirit reaches out;
searching to find some
meaning to this desolation
on flourishing farmlands
of abundance and beauty.

 

Will you finally let me be
who or what I am meant to be?
Because, now, this day, there
is a joyful pain in my soul.

 

Will I be? Will I be?
Good Lord, I am still
waiting on you; while 

still striving, asking, 

seeking, knocking on

heaven's door of your 

deeply compassionate

heart. I am hopefully 

still waiting: "do not
pass me by!" 

 

Let me not be weary.
Let me soar and mount
on wonderful wings like
your eagle of my essence.
Just let me be who I am 

created to be, abidingly: 
I humbly plead! 

 

Humankind with 

heartless homes: 

 

Fading moments of my
yawning awakening...

 

My soul is heavy ladden.
"Do not pass me by."

Give me your

mustard seed
faith. Let me

not be weary.  

 

Let me go 

home now

into your 

goodness

for there

is

These words, as if from a waking dream, call out to the soul as they
call out to God...
Yes this...
that thou hast called me to do and be... Let me be!

Peace my Brother and God's love ~~~ Dougie ~
