Pain

What Have We Done?

Ugonna Wachuku

 

Calmness and pure pain

unknown overwhelms
my being.

 

Black

Lives

truly

MaTTeR! 

 

Human 

Live 

Matters! 

 

Silence!

 

"I have a dream:"

So:

"Let

freedom

ring!" 

 

I walk the land unknown.
I walk the land unloved.

 

Silence!

 

When love is gone,
humanity beware! 

When freedom to 

be who we are 

created to be is 

gone, humankind

weep with me and

act for restoration! 

 

When skin colour bars, 
humankind beware!

Black Lives Matter! 

Human live matters! 

 

Earthquakes are gathering.
Handsome storms are waiting
to stir-up the lake in the
heat of the land. Give me 

freedom to love and 

bloom for life; for dying

earth; for dying peoples

on this enchanting earth!

 

Now, I am giong home.
I am going home.
Yet, I'll be with you
because there is a sea
of unwavering love in
my silent soul.

 

This day and tomorrow;
and always, I'll still
ask, in the silence of
my aching heart:

 

What have we done?
What have we done?
What have we done

to one another?
What have

we done,
humankind!

 

Black

Lives

Matter!

 

Human

Live

Matters!

Ugonna,
Truly a question that all should be asking. If God loved us enough to
give life and love, Happiness to us, what right do we have to spoil it
by doing the things that have distroyed humanity. And God as a loving
God gives us chance after chance and yet it continues to happen. Can
we as a human race ever be what God intended. Maybe one day this world
will be as it was meant.
Peace and Love walks with you
Judy

Take My Love

Ugonna Wachuku  

 

 

When all is said and lived;

when beauty and joy are

planted in your earth-heart;

when the last royal roses

come to you, remember, I

will always be there for

you through pain, agony

and tears.

 

And handsome heaven's

brilliance will be your 

light through dark waters.

Day shall be your companion

through sun-lit pathways

of hope, love and new

life.

 

In my soul, caring streams

and rivers will rise on this 

trying, painful journey 

through life. 

 

Windful waterfalls will kiss

me for a new kind of hope in

love and beauty enchanting.

 

Just remember, I will always

be there for you. Darling, you

can gladly count on me to till

the land and work the farm 

through every pain and 

agony. 

 

I will tend the garden and

bring you roses and tullips

of blue and yellow.

So, always remember,

there will be no if.

I'll listen and care. 

I'll uphold you to 

outlive every terror 

and pain with love 

and wisdom. 

 

You can always count on heaven

to bloom my heart anew each day.

Even when the spirit is weak, I

will ever remember that you are

there. Surely, darling, I will.

 

Take my love when you will.

And remember, through this

pain, through this agony,

I will ever 

be there, 

all

for
