“Root Of The Matter” (poem / poetry)

Hi, I’m here, because I wanted to show,

That it’s cool to open up, even for blokes,

Life can smell of roses, and sometimes of crap,

When it gets too much for me, my friends have my back.

Money worries, disrespect, and household mess,

Are a few of the things that at times make me stressed,

But I have many blessings, so I take the manure,

Feed the roots of my roses, and they blossom, once more.

We all have moments where we let things get on top of us, but in those moments, the worst thing we can do is to choose to suffer in silence. Whether the issues are big or small, we all need a way to vent the pressure that’s building within us.

Talking about things is a great way to remove their power over you. For instance, if somebody has disrespected me, I’ll usually tell them about themselves, I don’t have to do so in a disrespectful way, but they will hear some potentially hard to swallow truths.

I have friends within my circle, that I feel I can talk to about anything, without judgement… it’s all love, and I am there to do the same for them any time they need me to as well, with no judgement, just love and empathy.

In addition to this, the fact that I’ve fully embraced my story, means I get to share my highs and my lows with all of you wonderful people, spark up deep conversations with some of you once I’ve opened up, and show that it’s okay for anyone to be a bit stressed or low about things, it’s what we do next that really matters!

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!
