Hope Rising…Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge.


Hold on to your hope; for hope is the leaven that bakes the bread of your expectation – Jacqueline 

Hope Rising


Even when my breath falters in trepidation

hope burgeons within my soul.

For the spirit of light

must outshine the pitch of darkness

and the strength of love

bends the hopeless state of hatred.


Our Hope in humanity must arise

even in the midst of dire crisis.


Giving up hope is as good as giving up breathing because each day that we live, we are faced with challenges that require the strength of our hope, faith and courage to get through.

Sometimes dire situations can cause us to become despondent, however, there are various ways of holding on to your hope whilst you walk through a situation. One can’t just roll over and give up. We’ve got to keep holding on to hope, walking our way through, for no circumstance is permanent.

Below is my first Poetry Book “Out of the silent breath” which is available on Amazon and Smashwords.

When you buy my book, you support me in an invaluable manner.

Out of the silent breath

Jacqueline Oby-Ikocha’s poems portray images that stare us right in the face. Images of love, joy, death, pain, challenges, violation, and freedom. She writes in a language that’s rich in imagery, earthy, honest, vulnerable, yet full of the promise of hope, of loving and of Grace. A collection of light and dark soulful prose.
