“Do You?” (poem / poetry)

I have a quite pressing, effervescent question,

Vibrating your strings with theoretical plectrum,

You’ll either resonate, or dispute this here classic,

But I’d like to know, do you believe in magic?

The comprehension required is rather demanding,

Is there a flaw in our laws, or in our understanding?

We only witness, what we choose to perceive,

Is your vision filtered, or are you willing to see?

Magic is an often misunderstood term, many believe it simply means being hoodwinked by someone using slight of hand and misdirection. This narrow definition does magic a great disservice, for the following reasons:

Magic is… a feeling that excites the senses; something indescribably beautiful and moving; the ineffable connection shared between any number of people, that makes you thankful for their existence; the many ways that nature speaks to us, blesses us and inspires us; (deep breath)…

The fact that every single element and atom that forms a living being is on its own, inanimate, and yet we live and breathe in spite of this; that one smile can warm millions of hearts; one loving hug can ease a decade of pain and suffering; one selfless act can inspire a lifetime of generosity and gratitude in the receiver, and the giver.

I could go and on, but you get the picture, magic is real, it is there to be witnessed and also made by those with the desire to embrace it. I believe in magic, with all of my heart and soul, but my question, my friend, is… do you?

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 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!
