“War Torn” (poem / poetry)

Entrenched in turmoil, holding my ground,

Battling this foe, as they’re staring me down,

We’re both so different, my fear takes a hold,

I stick to one side, or there’s judgement, we’re told.

Incorrect, call a truce, as diplomacy reigns,

Don’t spend your time fighting, it’s best to embrace,

There’s a better way, rather than pain or surrender,

Complementary opposites, thriving together.

War comes in many forms, some of them reach for hundreds of miles and change the face of the planet; others reside within, changing the depth and reach of the soul and the heart. This piece touches on them all, and highlights their common denominator… that we are all part of the same Universe, a Universe currently attacking itself!

Millions of people have lost their lives over the ages, and continue to, because repeatedly, generation after generation have allowed ignorance, fear and greed to control them, and have sought to feed the belly of hatred! The Hatred Banquet has been the main agenda for millennia, hating others, and ourselves.

As a species, we think we are extremely advanced, but we can act so primitive, destructive and counterintuitive. It also pains me that many of us can’t yet unite under a lasting banner of love and acceptance; it brings a tear to my eye, to see people unable to appreciate their wonderful, natural features.

Let’s stop the war between masculine and feminine energies, and champion both; let’s heal wounds and build bridges; let’s all feed the belly of love; let’s embrace the differences of others, and realise that we all embody beauty, and our uniqueness, only amplifies it.

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!
