“Free” (poetry / poem)

Generously filled, I sense power within me,

I swell with potential, my vessel starts lifting,

I rise way above my usual surroundings,

The heights that I reach are completely astounding!

There are so many things I can see and achieve,

Although, one day I’ll pop, and be labelled deceased,

Yet I’ve nothing to fear, when my shell is no more,

I’ll live on as the substance inside, and still soar.

This piece was written from the perspective of a once empty balloon, which then found itself engorged with helium and substance, it then began to live out its purpose, and thanks to it not being narrow-minded, it wasn’t held in one place, but was able to venture up into the sky and broaden its horizons.

This balloon soon realises how wondrous existence can be, and begins to fulfil its potential and grow into something greater than the sum of its parts. Before long, it dawns on our adventurous friend, that life as we know it, eventually ceases for each of us, but they acknowledge that this is not truly the end!

The substance that developed within itself, during its many adventures, accomplishments and insights, the sacred essence it encapsulated, will continue on, living in a way that us as the observer would not be able to see, but may possibly be able to sense or comprehend.

I would like to dedicate this piece to those of you who have lost someone special (or have a loved one who is terminal), though they may no longer be with you in the form or manner you were accustomed to, we keep their essence alive, and we can still feel their presence, when we allow our senses to receive and acknowledge their unique beauty.

Love and Respect always,

Following Whispers.

Author: Following Whispers

Hello, I'm Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing for over 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 three books available Worldwide, including my most recent release "Poems That Move You". 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 there, after which, why not pick up a book of mine, drop by Instagram, connect with me and say hello!
