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

Very well written, richness and plenty do not always satisfy, for that you need something which is very close to heart & soul. And again very true that aspiring beyond does never beget that...... very nice. You may read my poem My quest and my dream. and The power of truth
