To Infinity and Beyond

Hello fellow explorers! Once again, I’d like to bless you with another free poem, to give you a further taster of my debut poetry book, “Proceed With Awesome” (Available here).

This poem is dedicated to those of us who love to travel, meet new people, learn something new about the World or themselves, embrace unfamiliar experiences, plus to those who appear to seek ALL available knowledge and experiences. …good hunting!


Travelling is something we all seem to do,

Either physically or exploring the depths of the mind,

Whether it’s miles or thoughts that you cover,

You can’t do it all in a single lifetime.


Just think how many square metres this World has,

Too many for any one mind to perceive,

It’s impossible for someone to visit each metre,

And know that they’ve been everywhere when they leave.


All of the knowledge and information around us,

Could never be absorbed or viewed by one brain,

Those amazing facts of existence and culture,

For one person to know, would send them insane.


Complex data and ancient mysteries,

That place or fact the map or media missed,

Secrets, experiences and Government cover-ups,

Put together would form an infinite list.


There are people you shall never walk past,

There are things you shall never think of or see,

Things that don’t interest you, so you miss out,

Wisdom you want that is never released.


This planet amazes me with what it contains,

I know I can never know its full contents,

Questions I have that shall never be answered,

Things that I’ve read, but don’t get what they meant.


If you know everything then there are no surprises,

Being a know all, you’d have nothing to seek,

I’m glad that this is not at all possible,

As you’d be detained and labelled a freak.


We’re a small, compact ball of information,

There is so much more away from our planet,

Stars, Galaxies and the unknown Universe,

We want this knowledge, but could we handle it?

Author: Following Whispers

Hello, I'm Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing for over two decades. 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, plus inspire myself and 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 began publishing my writing in 2018 and currently have three books available Worldwide, including my most recent release "Poems That Move You". I have bared my soul in each and every one of my poems, and I'm confident that you'll get just as much from reading them and relating them, as I did from writing them. Please feel free to look around my site and read the free poems I've shared there, after which, why not pick up a book of mine, drop by Instagram, connect with me and say hello!
