An alien place, shrouded in mystery,

So dark, distant and extremely peculiar,

Housing pressure that would be deadly to me,

Without special equipment, to keep me or you here.

Yet life does flourish in this hostile terrain,

Hidden wonders, that we can barely perceive,

Fascinating features, that I just can’t explain,

Like bioluminescence in the deep blue sea.

There are parts of this planet, that are more akin with the surface of Mars, there are also a much greater percentage of unknown creatures living in the sea, than there are ones we know about.

Just take a minute to digest these facts, the deepest depths of our oceans are more alien to us, and less uninhabitable than some other planets and moons in our solar system are!

The creatures and plants way down at the bottom of the sea, defeat insane odds and environmental challenges, they perform amazing tricks to aid their survival, like forming light from with their cells, all of which simply blows my mind!

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!
