Hello, I’m Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing poetry for 22 years.
I’m a self-professed Geek who can get deep sometimes, but I personally don’t take myself too seriously, I just love to have fun, inspire myself and others, plus be inspired by others.
In my early twenties, I realised that beauty can be born out of not only love, but also pain and other motivations. The more I used writing poetry to make sense of my busy mind, the more it helped me to find a silver lining in even the darkest emotions, experiences, observations and topics; find positivity even in the face of extreme negativity; find strength when I was being forced to feel weak; and find hope that my tomorrows would be brighter.
I currently have 2 poetry books published, my debut “Proceed With Awesome” and my brand new release “Confront The Shadows”, be sure to check them both out here. I have bared my soul in these poetry books, and I’m confident that you’ll get just as much from reading and empathising with them, as I did from writing them!
If you haven’t done so already, make sure you subscribe to my blog (see the right-hand column or towards the bottom of this page – device dependant), so that you don’t miss out on any of the new poems shared for free (around 3 poems a week). Once you’ve done that, you should check out these awesome free poems that I’ve already shared here.
If you would like further information or have any formal queries related to me or my work, please use the contact form, alternatively, why not drop by my other online hangouts, connect with me and say hello there, the links to which can all be found on the Whisper Links page.
