Your HANDS are all over me, in a visual display,

You KEEP me, yet treat me like a sign of decay,

You know WHEN you are with me, any (ME) of the day,

I frame all your memories, to RECALL as you may.

I PASS BY, you don’t see me, only my effects,

I can be an opportunity, or a (ME) you regret,

Hopes, fears and decisions, on me you PROJECT,

If you gain MORE of me, usually you feel blessed.


What am I?

The clues to this riddle are in CAPS, the answer to the riddle also fits in all of the (BRACKETS) in this piece.

Are you using me wisely?

What would you differently if you had more of me?

It’s (ME) to make the most of the (ME) you have left! 😉

Author: Following Whispers

Hello, I'm Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing for around 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 two books available Worldwide, including my most recent release "Confront The Shadows". 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 here, after which, why not grab a book of mine, drop by Instagram, connect with me and say hello!
