“Beyond”

This is not something I’d usually even try,

It’s unnerving working outside of the norm,

I lack know-how on which I could rely,

I have reservations, qualms, anxiety storms.

No one to hold my hand and walk me through,

My comfort zone is leagues away from here,

I feel exposed, bare, but resolute,

New methods hold potency, beyond the fear.

Fear of the unknown has a huge impact on almost all of our decisions, actions, strategies and lives. Because of this, it also influences the painful outcomes that we struggle to break free from, and by extension, our future.

It’s only when we put ourselves in new, unfamiliar situations, that we can find out who we truly are, what we are actually capable of, and can change that seemingly dark destination to somewhere brighter and much more desirable.

What have you done that was outside of your comfort zone, that helped you in some way?

Love and Respect always,

Following Whispers.

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!
