“Pot Luck”

We are all moving pieces on a large green vista,

There are dangers, in the far reaches of this plane,

Great holes to pluck you from view, a fate we are all due,

A factor of reality, that cant be dispelled in haste.

We’re all in a game, in a multitude of colours,

Sharing many similarities, more than our differences,

When we interact, we help each other along our path,

Many options are on the table, we can collide or kiss.

But to get ahead, we have an established code to follow,

However, much is possible, with the right approach,

When our luck is spilled, we can feel racked with guilt,

If we act foul, our progress is stunted the most.

Still, the game rolls on regardless, fair play is rewarded,

Sometimes we miss opportunities, at times we get the lot,

So, before we’re punked, snookered, or inevitably sunk,

Let’s chalk it up to experience, and cue the next shot.

Yes, you’ve guessed it, here is another of my exclusive (published, but never before shared online) poems, this time, from my second  book, “Confront The Shadows”.

Today’s piece focuses on the parallels between our lives, and the game of Snooker. I must admit, I enjoy playing Pool more than I do this game, but Snooker does require a greater level of planning, patience and wit to achieve the desired outcome of satisfactorily completing the task.

We must all come to terms with the fact that every single one of us, will one day say goodbye to this green vista, and find ourselves on another plane of existence. Many of us realise, that it’s not about getting from A to B quickly, or even preventing that eventuality, but rather, taking our time to get there, making meaningful connections, and preparing ourselves for our journey onwards.

As we venture on, we are likely leaving others behind. It benefits the entire game, when we consciously choose to have a positive impact on those around us. Yes, the game can have tense moments, but overall, the experience is meant to be a smooth and enjoyable one.

We should remember these points, as we navigate this seemingly crowded and distracting landscape, as focus, calmness, and helping others who are facing their transition, all make the experience much more rewarding and memorable.

Find your inner Stephen Hendry, Joe Davis or Ronnie O’Sullivan.

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!
