“The Search”

I look up and down, to the left and the right,

Searching for something, just out of sight,

Calling out to me, whispering truths,

But as hard as I hunt, it remains out of view.

I use a telescope, to extend my focus,

The further I scan, the more it seems hopeless,

Maybe I’ve failed! It must have escaped!

I blink and it’s staring me right in the face.


Throughout our lives, we all have things that we strive to find, without knowing exactly what form they will appear in or even from where. Be it finding love; a complementary career; friendship; financial security; acceptance; your voice; confidence; etc, know that you’ll be kept on your toes along the way.

There is no clear cut path, no blueprint, no “one size fits all” assurance in finding what you’re looking for. If you are lucky enough to get good advice, from someone with insight into the matter you’re pursuing, this is merely a signpost, sometimes towards a moving target.

One thing that I’ve often found when searching for something important to me, is that it’s somewhat different to what I’d initially expected, usually in a good way (as in a pleasant surprise), also, its easier to find when you’re not looking ferociously, and not sticking to the obvious places to look.

It is often closer than you think, and waiting for you to align yourself with it. You must first be internally ready to receive that which you yearn for, otherwise it will only show itself in the form of a lesson. Also, if it takes a long time to find, it’s usually so that you fully understand the respect it deserves.

Is there something you’re currently searching for? Remember to find yourself, and find gratitude for the blessings you already have, then you’ll find that which you seek.

Love and Respect always,

Following Whispers.

Author: Following Whispers

Hello, I'm Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing for over 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 three books available Worldwide, including my most recent release "Poems That Move You". 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 there, after which, why not pick up a book of mine, drop by Instagram, connect with me and say hello!
