The Familiar Bias

Once so often change perspective.
View an image from all sides.
See if it remains intact if
It discloses what it hides.


Fight off the familiar bias.
Always look for something new.
See what we ourselves deny us
Once you’ve gained an open view.


When transfixed all scenes turn solid.
Never think an outlook is
Just defined by how we call it.
Always look for what you miss.


Grasp and hold a foreign picture
To prepare for your escape.
Being unaware you’re tricked you’re
Stuck within a frozen scape.


Once you’ve seen a new horizon
It takes time to readjust.
What you choose to keep your eyes on
Soon becomes a thing to trust.


Look beyond acquainted limits
To perceive a greater range.
Once you’ve reached its outer rim it’s
Time again to face the strange.

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.
