“Homely Heart” (poem / poetry)

Do you ever wonder what’s the cure to lonely,

The antidote to you feeling empty inside,

First off, stop thinking about yourself only,

Do away with your sense of entitlement, pride.

Then get out the house, volunteer at a shelter;

Visit a care home; get to know other people;

Your reward for being a benevolent helper,

You’ll make loads of friends, and your heart will be gleeful.

They say that “home is where the heart is”, well for that to be true, for us to feel truly at home… in our skin, in our surroundings, our circumstances, and in this Universe, we should be mindful of what our heart contains, and also what it projects.

If we dwell on feelings of loneliness and pain, we begin to blame others for this, we often become bitter and this cycle is rarely evaded. However, when we show kindness to others, kindness is shown to us also, along with gratitude; when we show love to those struggling with the weight of merely existing, a weight is lifted from us, in turn.

I am not talking about buying the affections of others, but being the change we wish to see in the World. The more love we create within our environment, the more our lives overflow with love and genuine care. It’s okay to feel lonely, but it does no good continuing to wallow in it.

By being there for a neighbour, popping in on them, keeping them company from time to time, inviting them to your place sometimes, you become each other’s blessing. Or you could start a hobby group… basically, the possibilities are endless for a warm and optimistic, homely heart.

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!
