revolution

as greed and hatred grow
craziness abounds
many overwhelmed
by a sense of hopelessness

yet many also know
that care and kindness
will grow as we genuinely
connect with love and respect

politicians obsessed by greed
can no longer fill our need
so we must lead by example
simple acts of kindness are ample

by helping each other
lend a hand smile or kind words
restores our faith in humanity
firmly grounds us in sanity

don’t let disturbance blind you
we can turn around that view
for we have a good heart
so kindness we can impart

materialism consumerism brainwash
devices lull us into mindlessness
leaves us isolated excluded
but we the masses are included

when we reach out to each other
for we are all one tribe
not the duality they contrive
show kind care to survive!

  1. I especially like this…”don’t let disturbance blind you
    we can turn around that view
    for we have a good heart
    so kindness we can impart”
    Kindness is so powerful for change, especially if organized. We need to get back to the basics of using our hearts.

  2. Thought-provoking, as is your habit, Kate!

    Greed is a mechanism that powers us to strive, whereas kindness is what should motivate us.

    Both work, to a degree, though one is much more considerate of our humanity. There is a difference, often profound, between “can” and “should.”

  4. Love everything about this poem!
    What jumped out of your poem and right onto my face is the VERY important reminder that we are all one tribe! We are all members of The One and Only Human-Being Tribe.
    I want to believe if love, mercy, respect, kindness, acceptance, compassion, forgiveness, etc., were practiced by all peoples, every day, with everyone, then selfishness, hatred, disrespect, fear, etc., would fade away.

    • it can and does when we focus on those positives Carolyn!

      If we wait for another Mother Teresa, or the government, etc we will be a long time gone … best we take this action as individuals!

      Just as it takes many drops of water to make a roaring waterfall. Likewise the more of us that give focus and energy to the positives then our negatives will diminish and people will notice our example ❤

    I cant help but linger on this kate, as it is so true and currently happening not only in my home country but around the world.
