“Use Your Flipping Head”

Every story, every coin,

The two sides remain, until destroyed,

But the story’s parts, may overlap,

The spun coin, on its edge may land.

Both can be flipped, to change their view,

One’s solid, the other presents the truth…

In varied degrees, odd semblant reflections,

Coins can mask truth, change people’s perceptions…


If enough are combined, to sway their belief,

True words can slay demons, coins are a sheath,

Stick to your truth, do not be swayed,

Your story’s important,

please don’t be dismayed.


Money (coins), can be used for a huge amount of good, by helping others; healing; protecting; and for other positive missions; or money can be used to oppress others; distort the truth; and lead some away from their true calling, in pursuit of riches, fame and other distractions, by any means necessary.

These lost souls are then forced to act in a certain way, hold and express particular views, maintain a misleading image of what prosperity and happiness resembles, ignore the wrongs that they witness, and generally bow to the wishes of those controlling their coins, in order to maintain the bubble they now live in.

This world that they are now trapped in, keeps them from creating their true legacy, from writing their story the way it was intended to be written, full of truth, individuality and love. Instead, they become a tragic work of fiction, with their voice remaining lost until they decide to do something about it, if indeed they rectify it at all.

If nothing is done by this lost soul to bring their true story to light, it is basically destroyed, erased, rewritten, as only one flawed record now exists. However, when we speak from a place of truth and love, instead of being hypnotised by shiny gimmicks, our story can shine bright and help to inspire a better World for us all.

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!
