We are all dealt cards, some we wish we never had,

It’s all part of the balance of the Universal pack,

We may swap out a card, hoping for better wealth,

But, should also appreciate the hand we’ve been dealt.

Seemingly weak cards can end up being game changers,

You can fold, but are you doing yourself any favours?

We’ve no way of knowing, exactly what’s coming next,

Be certain of your choice, before reshuffling the deck.


A fairly self explanatory piece today, but hopefully one that gives you food for thought all the same! It’s not wise to rebuke the things that make you unique, they might’ve shown you how strong you are inside, or they may have made you more insightful, passionate, empathetic, etc.

So, spare a little thought for the hardships we have faced (or still do), find the lessons and blessings that they have created or contributed to, that will have benefitted you and probably your loved ones too.

Be grateful that you have a place at this game we call life, however short, however tricky, as some are not fortunate enough to get even that. May you find some peace and acceptance in this acknowledgment.

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!
