“Would They?”

If only they knew,

This hurt I embody,

Would they empathise?

And would they feel sorry?

Would my good intentions,

Then be understood?

I feel they would not,

But hope that they would.


Practically everyone has felt ignored, misunderstood or alienated at some point in their lives, but some people make a sport of ensuring that it happens as often as possible. It really hurts being on the receiving end of it too.

Me, I’m all about the love, the inclusion, welcoming and encouraging each other, inspiring and uplifting one another.

Actively showing and reciprocating love, is the best chance this World has at becoming a better place.

They had the right idea in the 60’s Hippie Movement, amongst others. Today, there are so many people out there trying to do their bit, but they’re being held back, they’re being discouraged. We need to support them and build a better reality, a better World, together.

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!
