The One-Way Gate

Once revealed, some things can’t vanish. 
When unconscious of our actions
we will never know if what we do is right.

Before we can see what’s righteous 
we must look at our wrongdoings.
There’s a penalty to pay to find the light.

To surpass the stage of blindness 
we must bear a phase of darkness.
Just make sure to pass that necessary state.

Don’t forget your destination. 
To return is not an option
once you choose, or stumble through The One-Way Gate.

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.
