“Keep Her True” (poem / poetry)

The heart is a vessel that can be hard to Captain,

When torn between knowledge, and what we imagine,

Too much reality, sadly, leaves no room for hope,

But steer blind towards dreams, and you’ll crash on the coast.

Many ships have been wrecked, by too heavy a hand,

Though don’t be led astray, know you’re in command,

Don’t endanger your ship, your crew or your mission,

Use your map and your eye, plus your soul’s intuition.

It is fairly easy to get blown off course, or to think – I’m doing everything I’m supposed to be doing, so why am I making no progress?! When we observe our life through narrow expectations, we can find ourselves sailing around in tight circles, and getting nowhere special.

One of the most beautiful qualities of the Sea, is how little we will ever know about it, we have benefitted hugely from using what we do know, but when we combine that with our curiosity and verve to explore unchartered possibilities, that is when the real magic happens.

Sometimes, we might not be anywhere near where we want to be, but we may unknowingly be exactly where we need to be, at that particular moment. Steering against these currents, could wreck our vessel entirely, cost us future discoveries, treasure, and more.

Enjoy the voyage… when things are unfamiliar, embrace the experience and add the insights to your map, so that you have more to guide you in your future journeys. There is no formula for happiness, but those who are resourceful, full of gratitude, and ride the storms in an adventurous manner, will surely dance with the waves, and become one with their surroundings.

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!
