loyalty

Intimacy (In This Moment)

Folder: 
To My Wife

Lost in this moment

The warmth of our bodies make us sweat

The stiffness from what we have just accomplished

You and I,

A miracle

Your breath invites me in

Into your heart

Into your mind

Into your very soul

As our bodies mesh into one

As our souls embrace each other

You sigh as I touch you

Ectasy as we unite

Swirlling vortex of pleasure

Both of us lose sight

As life is created within you

As death is passed on through me

A miracle is created

A mirror of that moment

When we came together as one

Loyalty

 

 

A person is either

Loyal

Or not.

 

If they are 

A loyal person,

They are loyal to 

Everyone.

 

When a person claims 

A loyalty

To a select few only,

That is not loyalty,

That is a preference

Of judgement.

 

Loyalty is something

Altogether different,

And usually,

Those who have no integrity

Are not capable of loyalty.

 

Loyalty.

A word misunderstood.

 

Be loyal to what you feel, know in your heart, mind 

And soul, is true and right for you.

 

Ignore all else.

You will make mistakes,

But if you do what you know is right,

True, and just

At the time you do it,

That is a quality that no money can buy,

And rare...

Precious...

And when you have that quality,

Everyone knows your true worth.

 

It cannot help but be seen.

The universe holds me,
Gently in it's arms,
Lovingly, with the grace of angels,
Stardust sprinkled upon my tired brow.

 

The universe holds me.

 

The universe warms me,
Kindly, with it's luster,
Blankets of billowing clouds,
And whispering winds that feel cool
Upon my heated beads of sweat
Sustained through growing pains
And open wounds.

 

The universe holds me.

 

The universe morphs my human frailties
Tenderly, like swirling colors of the rainbows
That shine their golden mist upon the greenest hillsides,
Donning light upon the flowers on its rolling breasts,
Transforming solid ground
To birth the dreams of cherubs' quests.

 

The universe holds me.

 

The universe holds me,
In darkest night,
When life has left and all is withered,
Dreams, once shining stars of fire
Now turned to ash by life's demands,
I wake to find the universe,
So devotedly, tucked safely in my hands.

We Fight

"We soldiers stand together, we never stand alone

 we fight and defend our freedom, though we might not come home

 freedom is never free, and this we can prove

 we fight for our country, we fight for all of you.

 

 We all learn a different MOS, but this I can confess

 when our country calls, we are all put to the test.

 With weapon in hand, we shoot strait and zeroed

 we fight 'till we have won, each soldier their family's hero.

 

 A father a mother a sister a brother,

 a son or a daughter, we still have each other.

 Banded together lead by leaders and values

 our day to come home is a day we count to.

 

 No matter in life or death we know we're in your thoughts

 but for now remember are battles, the wars we have faught.

 We fight for freedom, we fight for you

 we are soldiers, and this is what we do." - PV2 Jernigan

Pikachu, oh you,
Buddies till the end of time,
There is only you.

My Place

Folder: 
My Love

I’m sorry
But I can’t help but stare
I know those eyes
And I see right into them
Past the walls placed against them
Past all the remarks
Past all the cover-ups
Right to the scars
Right to the pain
Right to your fears
I’m your heart
Or at least
That’s what you gave me
I’ll never leave you
I’ll never let them hurt you
I’m always here
Embracing you
Letting you know
You’re still alive
And have so much to live for
This is my place
Living on the inside
So you can live without

Why?

Folder: 
My Love

Why do you do this?
What is it for?
Why can’t you see
She’s the one I adore?
But what do you care?
Her life isn’t fair
So easy to take
Her heart and tear
It seems so unreal
And yet I can feel
Her sorrow, her pain
Standing in her rain
Her heart’s tears, falling down
Slowly going to hit the ground
Splash against the hard pavement
And now I wonder what you meant.

Wherever You Lead

Ugonna Wachuku

 

The end of the day is drawing near.

The end of dreams and hope is winding

its weary way down green mountain slopes

and lush country-sides.  

 

There is a windy wave painting patterns

and rainbows on the cute canvas of my

soul. There are birds singing a dirge

for new hope in life.  

 

With the fresh fragrance of that dewy

despair in your simple soul, you flower

fleeing gardens in the deeper me.

There are bleak roads and bountiful

pathways.

 

There are dreams, realities and riddles 

and hope. There are longings and

age-long yearnings.  

 

Your heart is beating fast.

Mine is beating fast too 

on this trying journey called

life. 

 

Mountains and hills stand tall;

rising so high to kiss the sky's

blue-grey lips. Windows and shadows

open before this road that I have to

take. There are dreams, riddles and

brilliant blossoming hope. 

 

I ponder at that tasty aroma from the

sweet despair in your simple soul:

Sometimes, it seems all dark.

Somedays, it feels all lost.  

 

Somehow, it echoes hopelessness.

Somewhere, it shows a world in

hatred; a planet in conflict with

the inspirational breath of her own

beauty.  

 

Now, it really feels all dark.

Yet, there is a smiling sea of 

love in every human heart: 

 

I am the light of the world 

on so hopeful hills and 

towering mountain tops. 

 

There is a life-giving well in

the sea of empty hearts.

There is love and emerald in

your weary eyes.  

 

Even when they wish you dead,

there are doors to life on

the welcoming threshold of

heaven's lush country-side.  

 

I know: because, I've been there.

There are new roads of opportunity

and dreams to follow.

 

There are welcoming nightingales

and caring angels on this avenue

to life and hope, inspiring.  

 

There are waterfalls and rivers of

love wherever you lead. Wherever

you lead, there are guiding stars

and soothing sea waves on

the blessed beach.

 

There is peace. There is

joy. There is truth.

There is life - wherever

you lead.  

 

Wherever you lead:

My heaven's love.

My life.

My saving lamb,

wherever you lead,

I will follow.  

 

Take my little,

feeble hand.

Take my hungry

footsteps.  

 

Lead me to your

well of life and

hope because there

are smiling handsome

hawks swooping in on

the landscape of my

pleading soul.  

 

Let me not see these

tall mountains and

howling hills. Be in

my small head.

Let me cast my cares

and burdens on you.

Take my little hand.

Wherever you lead:

I will follow. 

 

Take my worries.

Take my little,

feeble hand.

I am nothing.

I am empty.

Take my

little

hand.

where

ever

you

lead

Wow! What a wonderfully written testimony. Your every word mirrors my own life, and relationship.  From the very first stanza to the last word, I felt your want to follow. To break free of the hold life so tightly grips on us.  Great poem. Truely blessed am I to have read it.

...a smiling sea of love/in every human heart.. That line, in the heart of this poem, is one of the lines of poetry that one tends to remember forever. This poem put me in a lovely, peaceful place. I can imagine myself inside the beautiful landscape you describe. Definitely, a tremendous sense of inner peace can be found in this poem. Thank you for sharing this.

Well done Ugonna, this is my favorite, of all of your works, and I do like them all. This one simply captured me, it's amazing! Great job! I love it!! It paints a beautiful picture in my mind, that this poem deserves a second and a third read if not more. I have to refer my friend to this poem and to the rest of your brilliant pieces, for I know she too will be swept away by this wonderful masterpiece. Thank you!! Peace and much love to you! 

Yours truly,
