Empty Vessels

Look beyond the given meaning,
the proclaimed interpretation
and the reason-less assumption when you read.

Neutral words are empty vessels
that adjust to what’s been added.
In their changed-to-fit condition they mislead.

Always keep your vision open
to their all-including essence.
Stop confusing them with what they may contain.

Fights about what they imply from
colored angles dissipate when
we’re in touch with what they overall explain.

Jerry Corstens is a visionary dreamer with a blind passion for self-reflection and contemplating life, a self-proclaimed philosopher with poetic ambitions. He's serious about helping people with the insights he gathered, but playful in the way he communicates his wisdom. It made him leave a career as environmental engineer behind, in favor of becoming a personal development coach and thought-provoking writer.
