Rest Assured

You, I will accompany,

Like Virgil in The Divine Comedy,

I will be your shadow,

A constant friend wherever you go!

I will never misguide you like Iago,

This is something you must know,

I am not Mephistopheles,

Neither am I a contagious disease!


Love in return is what I long for,


Love is the remedy I can get from you evermore!

Be Still


               Be Still!

Be still and know that I am God.

And that wonders will never cease.

That I'm right here and never left.

Even though you thought that first.

At times...we all can feel let down, 

And at times like "No One" cares.

But it's not true, in time it will show through..

That "My Love" was "Always" there.

I've shown "My Love" through these Angels above,

That help you though unaware.

They're there to "Guide" and "Comfort" you.

And to help you become more prepared.

That you'll be fine...and learn in time...

That "My Love" was "Always There".

And that this was just for a Season.

To further your life instead.

So know "My Love" your Loved from above,

No Matter or what you might think.

And that I Rest You in the Palm of my Hand,

Even though You May Not Even Think!

Written and Composed By: Denise Hall-Campbell

Psalm 46:10 "Be Still, AND KNOW THAT I AM "GOD".

Psalm 139:10 Even there "Your Hand" shall lead me,

and your right hand shall hold me up.

Isaiah 41:10 Don't be afraid, for I am your God.  I will

Strengthen you and help you.  I will hold you up with my

Victorious Right Hand.

Dance of the Dragonfly




Large cup-shaped crater at the public gardens

Filled with water, lilies, and maiden grasses

Home to a family of ducks and koi, who

Swim gently under skipping water striders


A space free of predators. A protected habitat.

Ample time to watch the dragonflies dance

Above rippling water and wind-waved reeds

Pellets of food provided by hands outreached


When people have stopped their bustling

The sun’s hot rays have wrapped up the day

With Orion watching amid sparkling stars

On solid steady rock, I tuck my feet and head


Ease into a bowl-shaped slumber

Secure as protected unhatched egg

 Opinionated, educated, sensitive


strong, a leader, fragile


“That girl’s got moxie!”


Betrayed by her sisters


Shunned by her brothers


“That woman’s a Bitch!”


Shame, Fear, Loneliness


Strength, Peace, Frailty


“That child is mine.”

Prism of maimed love

i'll walk alone.. with your precense carved into my heart...

not even stones could break down what i've built up. not any hatred... no fear.

it's going to stay right here..

as long as it remains untouched.. if I can manage to let it be..

then i'll always have you with me.


as much as I may look up to the stars & cry..

as much as I ask the sun why...

how often I wish the clouds away.. 

is as much as I feel you every day.. 


maybe there is a sharp fence around your heart...

is there cotton in your ears..? is your vision pitch black..?

have you gone blind? is your mind in tact..?

do you think you're just fine..?


silly me.. still wondering, though we've left it all behind..


all I really want is to die in the grace of someone I love..

gazing into their eyes.. arms held tight..

my spirit could finally take flight. 


i'm so fucking sick of this misery..

i'm tired of not having any energy..

i'm done with the pressure on the sides of my head..

i'm finished with the aches in my back.. 

i'll drown out all the nausea..

I will forget about the broken glass..

the shattered past.. 


if we didn't know such a thing as sadness existed, would we still feel it..?

Your my poem
my inspiration

you fill my day
with burning

in the stillness
of the night
I seek you out.

your my refuge
in the storm.

the beat of my
without you I
would not be.

"If I Could Know"

by Jeph Johnson


If I could know you'd never leave me
If I could know you'd always care
If I could know you'd be there for me
If I could know I'd be aware


And when others spoke of true love
I used to wonder how they knew
When the right person in their mind's eye
Would reawaken what was true
And it's the trusting and devotion
The faith in each other's eyes
The look that says I love you
The dreams that never die
It all seems so foreign to me
Almost like deja vu erased
Reading the look of love
That I could know was on your face    


If I could know...
then you'd never leave me
If I could know...
then you'd always care
If I could know...
then you'd be there for me
If I could know...
you'd be aware

The Letter

Ugonna Wachuku  


To fill empty hours of my despair and positivity; to occupy 

these fleeing hours that seem to have no meaning; just to

find fulfilling reality to the pain I face, let me write you this

letter; hoping that my intention would be well understood;

believing that whatever I feel for this being on the path to

love and life would be made known when the next new

moon brightens our calm sky; in order to bring hope,

inspiration and smiles to the bleeding soul of each

humankind who fatally face persecution and 

fundamental human rights violation.  

May we have good governance, servant leadership, love, 

human rights, peace, security, abiding electricity, healthcare, 

education, economic viability, prosperity, durable roads, 

functional public transportation, national pride, global 

respect, accountability and sustainable development for 

our enduring, protesting plus "suffering and smiling" 


This is a mind journey in the being and soul that I am. 

In my native Igbo language, we call it: ak na uche; 

meaning common sense and good thought. Let me, 

in this poetic letter, take the mantle of good thought 

and common sense into that unfathomable realm of 

the human mind and essence in motion. This is the 

realization of all that makes us human. Whether 

we are humane is another matter.


Let me, therefore, write this letter to you; believing 

that the meaning of all I desire and cherish for the 

survival and oneness of humanity would be seen in 

that same spirit of peace, love, creativity, innovation, 

sustainability, inspiration and solidarity amongst 

humankind. May we see, hear and understand. 

May we be. 


The Letter:




Many days ago, I left home.   
You were not there; but I had
to take you with me in order to
find meaning to the new person I
would be through creativity 

and innovation. 


You were not there. So, I resolved
not to leave you behind shadows and
dark clouds. Many streams flowed in
my heart. I was so lonely. Yet not
alone. I was on my way to this new
life, hope and beginning. Yet, I
knew brooks in your thought. Those
brooks embraced and watered my effort
to find that nature of life in an
environment so peaceful yet painful.


My faith was strong. I had every
firm belief that I would make it.
You gave your blessing and love
even before I asked. Did you not
tell me what to wear? Did you not
affirm that my faith will surely
see me through in that ever 

present Sea Walker's

unfailing love and care?


When you walked away, a windy, 
calm, refreshing breeze from you
embraced my being. I felt angelic
hands on my head and shoulders.
Thoughts of you followed me to the
end of blue, midnight clouds and
skies. I was breathless. I hoped to
see earth's coming new day.


In my dreams; in my thoghts:- those
thoughts you posses, I saw your face
that blue, cloudless night. I saw 

inspiring hand of beauty and dignity

which you placed on my life. I waited

to embrace your new rainbow. Then,  

waited on the beach of your love

and solidarity to ponder and dream
good, new dreams for you and for
me, for humankind in need and pain.


I write to you today, in my pain;
in my despair; in my uwavering 

hope; in my uplifting joy, in my

loneliness and calm uncertainty; 
just to let you know that love will
always conquer; even when its not
given or given but not accepted. 


You mean hope itself to me.
You mean loving thought and
the will to survive to my
being. You are life. You are
love so brilliant. And this

loving brilliance I must follow

in order to remain human with
humaneness; for us and for

our enduring, protesting plus

"suffering and smiling" people;

because through this devastating

pain, meaningful freedom, sustainable

liberation and hopeful reality must 

emerge to plant our inspiring people

on flourishing "green pastures"

of this blessed land.   

With love and every beautiful wish:


Ugonna Wachuku
