“Spruce Up”

Declutter your soul,

On junk, go to Town,

Ascension’s the goal,

But what’s holding you down?

Don’t hoard bulky baggage,

It’s serving no use,

Just tend to the damage,

Then pursue your truth.


Spring is upon us, and many of us will get rid of clutter in our homes, deep clean the things that really need it and maybe try a new approach, such as putting a new colour on the walls, reworking our storage, or in true Marie Kondo style, if it doesn’t spark joy in you, say thank you, and goodbye!

The irony is though, that we rarely give anywhere near the same level of care and attention to ourselves! Our emotional baggage is often crammed into metaphorical basements, attics and garages, then ignored, until we have no choice, but to fill up every room and let the baggage rule the roost!

Like most things that are worth doing, the hardest part is actually getting started! Yes, it will seem like a lot of work to begin with, but as you work through things, you’ll begin to feel lighter, as the issues weighing you down are served their notice and evicted, leaving you feeling stronger.

It should be said, that even the most enlightened souls are not entirely baggage free, they merely understand the importance of its release from their vessel, and by cleaning as they go, it never lingers or gets on top of them. This is the reality that I wish for each and every one of you! So, let your spruce up commence! 😉😁💗

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!
