“Reach” (poem / poetry)

Even when our hearts are in the right place,

Some people won’t welcome us, we’ll receive hate,

Don’t take it personal, just give them space,

They may come around, if they don’t, it’s okay.

Some people don’t want help, which is just fine,

You can’t reach them all, but I’m glad that you tried,

Focus your heart on those wanting your light,

Be there, but let them create their own shine.

It is best not to waste your efforts on someone who does not want to be reached, let them know you are there if they need you, and leave it at that. For all you empaths out there, the time you devote to helping others is best invested in the people that welcome your guidance and support.

Your door may be open to all, but should only serve those that are willing to walk through it. Once they decide to walk through the threshold, our main focus should be to show them the strength they embody, equipping them with the love, insight and tools they need, in order to be able to improve their own life, we are but a guide.

By using this approach, we do not overreach our bounds, plus the people we are assisting are then ready to tackle whatever life throws at them, because we have instilled a positive perspective within them, the light we’ve encouraged them to create, is much more likely to be long lasting and far reaching.

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!
