“Illusion (In the Beholder’s Eye)"
If Beauty’s in the eye of the beholder
What does the Beholder think?
Of her face, so pretty?
What does the Beholder want to see?
Illusion, illusion, what do you see, love?
Love, makeup distorts the natural grace
Illusion, illusion, what do you want
To see, pretty, love, she is a queen,
Royalty, we associate beauty with its name
But as history shows, the ugliest thing
Mark it so, ugly. Style and fashion
Run their course, definite and short
But beauty’s not an opinion
It’s just a state of mind.
Illusion, illusion, what do you see, now?
Love, the natural grace is hidden
I have a choice to choose between
The model and the poor girl
You know, the model is so far, prettier?
Well, it’s just because we give her a label,
If you look again, the poor girl’s
So much prettier than you realized
Illusion, illusion, beholder, tell me this
Contests of beauty, I can’t relate
I ain’t any judge, but I won’t vote
On this made-up face

"Verses Short & Sweet"
A Poetry Collection by Richard Rowell
Lyn Lomasi & Richard Rowell are life & business partners. Owners of Brand Shamans & the Write W.A.V.E. Media network, we are your brand healing, soul healing, & content superheroes to the rescue!
Running our network of websites, tackling deadlines single-handedly, and coaching fellow writers, brands, & entrepreneurs to be thought leaders is our top priority.
While rescuing civilians from boring content and brands, we conquer the world, living the RV life and managing our Intent-sive Nature with our awesomely crazy family while recounting The Nova Skye Story, along with Kymani’s Travels.
We also strive to one day cuddle with lions and giraffes. Until then, we’ll settle for furry rescue kitties and doggies.
We support many causes via our business ventures, such as homelessness, support for trans youth, equality, helping starving artists, and more! A portion of all proceeds from Intent-sive Nature goes toward helping homeless pets in local shelters.
