The Love That’s on Display

Looking for a future love,
While love is in the past,

Will not ever be enough.
What’s not will never last.

What’s been born of emptiness
Remains an endless spill.

Only direct happiness
Feeds love that can fulfill.

Don’t embrace what’s always gone,
But look at what is near.

Terminate your focus on
What’s never now and here.

When you will not recognize
The love that’s on display,

You will never realize
The love that’s here today.

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.
