Travelling at the speed of light,

I wonder, what I’d even see?

Could I finally witness the slowing of time,

Would the expanding Universe now be perceived?

Might I then, lose sight of Earth?

Using tachyons, could I go even faster?

Rewinding time, realising my worth,

Becoming The Doctor, rebuffing The Master.


Travelling through space and the possibility of time travel, both really fascinate me. I love subjects where practically anything is possible, as you can get really imaginative, plus are kept excited by continual breakthroughs and discoveries!

I am (if you didn’t already know) a huge Geek at heart, I love learning new things, finding out more about our awe inspiring existence, and taking trips to other realms merely with the power of my mind.

As a writer this is an invaluable tool to draw inspiration from, and as a human, it creates many deep philosophical questions for me. What would we do with such immense power? Can you imagine what we’d learn about ourselves and everything around us? Would you even want to know? Would it blow your mind?

Doctor Who fans out there, will immediately know the two characters I referenced at the end, one a sworn defender of all in need, the other, their arch nemesis, who represents greed and destruction. They both use their similar, advanced abilities in very different ways, as ultimately, our morality and choices carve our path.

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!
