“Thirst For Life”

First off, you amaze me, you warm my heart,

I could see your warrior spirit, right from the start,

Your strength’s inspiring, you put mine to shame,

That’s not your intention, your fight’s just insane!

Life’s dealt you tough cards, that would break other beings,

You’re a champion of light, joy, love and warm feelings,

No complaints from you, just smiles and swagger,

Your thirst for life fills us with hope that won’t shatter.


I would like to take this opportunity to show my love and appreciation for the many, many warriors I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know, people that have inspired me so much with their gusto, their determination to not let hardship define their experiences in life, plus the radiance of their beautiful souls and uplifting views.

I am in absolute awe of your gorgeous spirits, generosity and excitement, even when life has tried to rob you of your comfort, time and hope, you didn’t not buckle, you took the blows and got back up with fierce motivation and a glint in your eye. Seeing the World through your eyes, has unlocked so much beauty for me!

I have witnessed so many triumphs of the human heart, such as friends and family with terminal illnesses who overflow with life and enthusiasm; others who have suffered abuse, but haven’t let it define their character and life; people who have lost loved ones, but still bless others with their inner gorgeousness!

Those that are there for a soul, supporting, encouraging and caring for them, without wanting anything in return, they just genuinely care. I am forever indebted to the beauty and love that you bestow upon us! May we be blessed and uplifted by your continued radiance, for decades to come!

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!
