“Soulful Ambition”

The façade has crumbled,

Before our very eyes.

The things we held dear,

Shrouded in lies.

The world has changed in inexplicable ways,

Long for innocence, how I miss those days.

Now we’re confronted with a distasteful truth,

Listen closely for the proof.

They exert power, but pretend its love,

Fool me not, you contrarian dove.

Anger upon rage, and more of the same,

A wild heart can never be tame.

Try to contain and smother,

Never do I wish, to control another.

Open your heart, engage your mind,

You’ll be surprised at what you find.

A soul who wants just peace and love,

And every now and then, a gentle breeze from above.

    • Thanks Michele! I need to hire you as my publicist! 😂 That’s very cool of you to say. Seriously, I try to find reason and rationality in our new world order. It’s lacking in every direction. It’s pretty freaky.

  1. Hi Kevin, great to see you are writing poems again. This is very appropriate for the whole world at the moment. I have lost 2 people I have been close to for many years in the space of 2 weeks – your last line of ‘And every now and then, a gentle breeze from above’ is perfect. Thankyou

  3. Beautiful photography, and words relevant for our times. I feel as you do, that the “facade” has fallen away, and we can see more clearly than ever the deceptions. I saw a quote from Solzhenitsyn today: “We know they are lying, they know they are lying, they know we know they are lying, we know they know we know they are lying, but they are still lying.”

  4. Beautiful poem and photos. Soon it will all be exposed Kevin, and we will all be able to live in truth, freedom, abundance, peace, harmony and Oneness. And all will be focused on the greater good of the ALL, and the planet.
