“Squander Not”

Many people around the globe, have a treasure they never enjoy,

When pain and sadness try to roost, there’s rarely a better decoy,

Yet these individuals ignore the resource, with no remorse ‘til some’s gone,

Then continue to do the same with the rest, staying stressed, not seeing what’s wrong.

They feel emotionally bankrupt, wishing riches would materialise,

Holding a winning lottery ticket, but never claiming the prize,

Cash it in, before it’s too late, as before long the chance expires,

Spend quality time with your family, before your luck, ups and retires!

The majority of us on this planet have a family, but it seems that many of us still don’t fully realise the importance of the gift we’ve been given.

The truth of the matter is, we don’t know how long each of us has left, and there is no magical hot tub time machine, that we can use to make amends for our regrets.

Yes, there may be relatives that you’ll never be close with (and probably justified reasons why), but I’m sure most of us have loved ones we care about greatly, but our actions and words do not always reflect this. Well, the time to do something about it, is now.

Even if it’s simply finding the time once a week (or whatever you can manage) to enjoy each other’s company, watching a film, having a deep chat, playing a board game, going for a nice stroll together, whatever it is, both of you won’t fully comprehend the huge value of those small gestures and memories, yet.

So please make the most of those precious opportunities today, your future self will thank you for it, believe me.

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!
