Life can be brutal, it can knock you about,

Testing your substance, pushing you down,

Some hit the ground and opt to stay put,

Believing the worst, their response is “enough!”

Others face hardships you couldn’t imagine,

Bombarded, they still send the bad vibes packing,

The definition of courage, resilience and hope,

These are the souls that I respect the most.


I know I’ve covered it before, but I feel the need to reiterate that there are some amazing individuals out there. It truly beggars belief, to even begin to comprehend the things they’ve endured, and still do, the daily battles they face, and yet they still uplift and motivate themselves.

Where most of us would wave a white flag and surrender, these inspirational individuals somehow find the strength to pick themselves up, dust themselves off, reload and go back to fight on the frontline again (metaphorically speaking). It isn’t easy, but they do it with such grace.

I have all the time in the World for these awe-inspiring folk, they show us the strength, hope and determination that we as humans, are capable of embodying. Their humility, warmth and compassion in the midst of great adversity, nourishes my soul more than a million hugs could!

So, to all the silent warriors out there, if you ever feel like nobody cares, or that you don’t matter, please be assured that you matter more than words can express! This World is brighter and more beautiful with your gorgeous soul in it, doing what you do, being the awesome individual you are… so keep shining, my friend!

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!
