“Upon Reflection”

Reminiscing on times, that now serve as a glimmer,

Rewinding to when life was oh so much simpler,

Reflecting on choices, and the outcomes that followed,

The yearning, the lessons, the ego now swallowed.

Though simpler, life back then was much more hurtful,

But the pain helped to train me, and my inner-circle,

We now stand as guardians, of love; freedom; light;

Every moment’s brought greater meaning to my life.


I’m pretty confident, that every single one of us can recall things that have happened in our lives, that we look back on with regret, but the question I pose is, in doing so, are we doing ourselves a disservice at all?

We’ve already established that none of us are perfect, we’ve all made errors in judgement, we’ve all led with our ego instead of our intellect from time to time, we’ve all poured fuel onto a fire, rather than putting it out.

As we move through life, almost all of us have learned many valuable lessons from these turbulent situations, although we may not wish to relive them, they have shaped us into the person we are today. Even one tiny deviation in our past, could, once the ripples have settled, remove many of the things we love and cherish.

Embrace your life, with all of its ups and downs, try to find the lessons in everything, it can make you and your inner-circle stronger; more compassionate; more driven; more focused on healing this World; more loving; and also proactive in establishing your legacy.

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!
