Unsought Beauty

👁 7783

Let go of what you’re looking for.
It blinds the seeking eye.
The options open to explore
Will only pass you by


When you don’t have an open view.
The beauty you expect
Prevents the rest from reaching you.
Don’t ever pre-select.


For splendor hides in secrecy.
It’s found when we unhook.
It’s not beheld in what we see,
But by the way we look.


It’s only when we lift the veil
Of our restricting thought
We can perceive and help prevail
The beauty that’s unsought.

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.

Jerry, I Love this poem because it’s pure Truth! We can never embrace anything if our hands are gripped in holding……and this poem says it both beautifully and magically…..
