“Red-emption”

Everyone else thought it couldn’t be won,

But we believed we could get the job done,

And sometimes that is all that it takes,

Belief in yourself, wisdom from your mistakes.

We achieved what we said we’d do from the start,

Meeting fierce resistance, with the strength of our hearts,

The odds we defied, left onlookers stunned,

But I feel that our best is still yet to come!

I feel like this piece could apply to so many ‘we persevered and conquered’ stories, but the one that this relates to for me, the one that inspired me to write this poem, is the momentous achievement of my beloved football (soccer) club Liverpool FC.

I have supported Liverpool Football Club for the last 28 years, through thick and thin, and it’s safe to say we haven’t always had a smooth time of it, but the team and community of supporters, have always shown a true loving bond between one another, and always put their hearts on show.

The team consistently graces the upper echelons of the UK’s most prestigious league, but this year, after a season of the most beautiful football I’ve ever witnessed, they lost the title race by a single point, having lost only one match all season, and they finished on the highest points in the Club’s history!

That achievement alone made me SO proud, but to beat FC Barcelona 4-0 in the 2nd leg Semi-Final of the European Champion’s League, and then go on to win the Final in Madrid last weekend, taking them to 6 ECL Winner Trophies, shows that they are worthy of Europe’s footballing crown.

So, to all of the Red Men, who call Anfield home, you have my respect and my heart.

Who or what has filled you with pride or inspired you recently?

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!
