“A Little Help” (poem / poetry)

I know how to smile, but I can’t shake the frowns,

I’m thankful for so much, but life still gets me down,

Is there something wrong with me? Can I snap out of it?

Belly full of goodness, but struggling to give a…

They call me Party Pooper, the mould on the cake,

Stuck in a downward spiral, one I hope I can escape,

I wish they’d understand, that I’m trying my best,

Maybe with help, I could somehow, build on these baby steps.

Yes, today I have my empath hat on… visiting a place that I’ve been many a time before, but today I’m here more for the benefit of my wonderful, but sometimes troubled friends out there.

Life is like a game of Snakes And Ladders, some people seem to land on so many ladders, while some of us step on every snake as we struggle to climb. However, several times I have slipped, I’ve landed on the longest snakes going, and I still got to that 100 square!

All you need to do is hang in there, and keep trying, and soon enough, those small moves will add up to a whole lot more for you.

If this poem speaks to you, detailing how you’ve been feeling, it’s important that you don’t bottle things up, instead open up and talk about it. If you believe that you have nobody who will listen, please know, that my door is always open.

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!
