“Temperate”

At times we’ll face attacks on our person,

Character and morals, of this I’m certain,

Often we fear what we don’t understand,

No awareness is sought, we just reprimand.

But if someone is doing wrong in your eyes,

Find the root motivation, that’s hidden behind,

You can still love someone, when you don’t like them,

Find their humanity, then help to revive them.

There is much that can be said about forgiveness, but more than that, about our chosen response to someone else’s wrong doing. I mean, how do we show someone the error of their ways, or understand why it happened, by being just as barbaric or bitter towards others as they seem to be to us?

We humans can be so quick to judge, pretending that we instantly know the reasons behind what happens around us, or to us… but how could we possibly know such things, if we haven’t sought to understand the perspective or pain of those who have committed these acts!

There may be psychological (or other) factors influencing them, that we hadn’t even considered, such as bipolar disorder or autism, which both affect the way the brain presents and processes information; childhood trauma; hormone imbalances; societal alienation; abuse; bullying; oppression; and many other possibilities.

Love and empathy are potent tools that have the power to bring us all together, heal deep wounds, and make life so much more rewarding for everyone. However, we cannot hope to achieve these things, if we are not investing in them, or showing others their power in healing, uniting and elevating us.

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!
