Revel in the Afterglow

What we want is mostly prompted
By what’s spotted, in the moment;
What we need is mostly triggered by a lack.


Wants light up until we have them,
But die down once in possession;
Needs are noticed only when we’re forced to check.


Our requirements shine fainter
Than the decoys of temptation.
Understand the gloom produced by what’s on show.


Redirect your aim beforehand
To the wisps of our essentials.
Serve their will to revel in the afterglow.

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.
