All That's Measured Poem by Valerie Dohren

All That's Measured

Rating: 4.9


Let go of all that binds your heart
Unveil your eyes from clouded sight
Release your mind from tethered thoughts
Then fly in freedom through the night

Be least content with more than less
Desiring nought that can’t be met
Don’t strive beyond horizons far
Seek not for all you cannot get

Do not aspire beyond your world
Hold not such dreams that cannot be
Nor hope that’s fixed in hopelessness
Be now content and ever free

When in your eyes there’s beauty fixed
And in your hand a treasure clasped
Then look no further for reward
As all that’s measured you have grasped

A measure of realistically achievable aspirations lend more freedom of action as against striving for what is beyond one's grasp. Greed for more is self defeating and never gives contentment. Message beautifully conveyed, Val.
