“Perpetual Illusions”

Enduring images plaguing the mind,

No rest for the wickedness making you blind,

Ceaseless immersion in groundless fallacies,

Shielded from truth, love, light, and reality.

Our senses are fooled, we’re made to feel helpless,

The power’s entrusted to those who won’t help us,

It’s time to remove their virtual prison,

By freeing our minds, our souls, and our vision.

It’s no exaggeration to say that we have been seriously misrepresented, belittled, oppressed, poisoned, used, fed lies, encouraged to live in fear of everything, including ourselves. We are constantly told what to feel, think, how to act, and much more, by what we see, hear and are made to believe.

Our freedom of speech is being gradually diluted and weakened, algorithms, assassinations, fake news and court cases are the new Inquisition, we are repeatedly punished for speaking the truth, more and more each day! We are given official narratives, which would make excellent fertiliser (as they are full of crap)!

How is it that a book that was published 70 years ago, is more accurate at depicting the shape our lives are taking today, than what we see on the news and read in most newspapers. The book I refer to is “1984” by George Orwell, which paints a disturbing picture of existence, that we’re well on the way to realising!

It’s not too late to turn things around, but if we remain passive, choosing not to seek truth, not to fight for what’s right, to not demand better, or spread love, we will surely see darker days. The future will be written by our deeds or inaction, the former can be a path to freedom, the latter, our subservience… choose wisely, my friends!

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!
