The race has begun,

It’ll challenge your mettle,

The fight’s no longer hidden,

There’s a point to be settled,

Dig deep and continue,

Obstacles, meet with force,

You have strength within you,

Spank the assault course.


There are many times in our lives, when we are called upon to rise to the occasion and show what we are made of. As we see the hurdles before us, it can be quite daunting!

Those of us who understand the importance of championing love and understanding, can seem tame to the people who don’t, and all the while they look at us and assume that they are zookeepers and we are weak, helpless zoo animals… oh how little they know of our potential.

Contrary to popular belief, the fact that we are grounded, spiritually balanced, perceptive of our inner selves, and are able to feel and harness vast amounts of energy simply through meditation, makes each one of us a serious badass!

Remember though, that when we step up and royally spank the assault course that lays before us, we don’t do it to massage our ego, we do it to break down restrictions and limitations, to reach our highest potential, through belief, persistence and positivity.

We are more capable of dealing with difficulties, obstacles and challenges than most, yet we are made to believe the complete opposite. So, I want to remind you, you are resilient, you are strong, you are wonderful and capable of anything you put your mind to!

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!
