“Monkeys Do See” (poetry / poem)

Monkey see, monkey do,

Bananas common sense,

Deception looks so good on you,

So take my vines again.

It’s safe to say I’ve lost my mind,

I’m caught up in the hype,

In the name of something undefined,

I’m gambling with my life.

A silly monkey, I must be,

Your mirage I have mimicked,

I see now, I was too trusting,

In fairytales and gimmicks.

It still amazes me the lengths that some people will go to, chasing myths, trying to be something that they are not. They’re willing to follow a script in a feature film they don’t believe in, all in an attempt to realise a shallow definition of success and a fleeting form of acceptance, from people who don’t care about anything with real substance.

Just because others are doing something, does not make it right, or right for you, but it’s possible to travel a great distance down a questionable path, before you realise that you are lost.

If you allow yourself to believe the hype, before long, you’ll be convinced to get involved in things, that you’d be ashamed to tell your loved ones about in detail. There is no amount of money, no goal or reward, that is ever worth selling your soul for.

Finding the love and acceptance you crave, within yourself, is one of the greatest things you can accomplish, and a true measure of success, after which, others will begin to realise how wonderful you really are, in your own right, and embrace you on your own terms. Protect the wealth that lies inside you, my friend.

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!
