“On The Up” (poem / poetry)

When you feel low, and your resolve is tested,
You may feel stuck in a rut, with no blessings,
It’s not about where you are, just where you’re headed,
When down, the only way’s up, so don’t sweat it!

By observing lessons, you’ll figure things out,
Find motivation in the gaps that you’ve found,
Fill them with meaning, your perspective’s what counts,
The smallest of changes, can turn things around.

When we find ourselves in a difficult situation or emotional state, the greatest thing you can do for yourself is to not give up on… you. When we resign to the pain and suffering we feel, we give it a licence to take root, remain and thrive.

It’s true that there are no quick fixes that last, every solution embodied with durability is fueled by continued effort, but this effort does not need to be exhausting, small steps can add up to huge achievements.

Also, no sensible person expects perfection from another person, or themselves for that matter… we will all have moments where we faulter, where we make mistakes, or grind to a halt, but it’s of the utmost importance that we find the strength to take another small step forwards, and one more after that, and so on, and so on.

Now, if you find it almost impossible to do so, please at the very least take a moment to DM me and share your burden, as speaking your true feelings and thoughts to one compassionate person, will make your soul feel instantly lighter, and from that small action, you’ll have taken your first baby step, and laid out ones that can follow.

I promise you, either things will get easier, or you will become stronger, but most likely… both. I believe in you, come and join me, the view is amazing.

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!
