“Lunacy Virtuoso”

I’m a bit loopy, misunderstood, weird,

Yet this brand of cuckoo, is seldom revered,

If I’d been alive in centuries past,

The powers that be, would section my ass.

My eccentric views are offensive to some,

Those wanting to keep us in turmoil and dumb,

So the search continues, in the hope that I’ll find,

More wonderful, passionate, peculiar minds.


Having your own voice, being original and independent, takes at least a smidgeon of lunacy. There is a script that we are all supposed to be reading from, an expected way to think and act, which keeps us circling the same problems, yet never overcoming them.

These encouraged behaviours, give a huge advantage to those who deem this necessary or “normal”… giving them control of our choices, our emotions, our thought patterns, our motivations, simply put, control our lives!

To go against these protocols, you are often seen as a lunatic and a trouble maker. For the ones upholding and enforcing these protocols, however, I have a message, quoting the wise soothsayer in Kung Fu Panda 2, “the cup you fill has no bottom!”

Their efforts will amount to nothing, because our well-being, prosperity and happiness is not their goal. More and more of us will begin to see through their lies, start thinking outside the box, redefine what happiness means to us, and gradually reclaim control of our lives.

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!
