Michael Cowden, a Kentucky native and US Navy veteran whose study of the martial arts and their philosophies led to his interest in the study of Zen Buddhism, has completed his new book “Wanted: Better Ambitions or…”: a collection of existential poetry and prose offering a provocative perspective on the serious challenges facing American society. Cowden writes,

“Do not read this book if you listen to others and not your true self.
Do not read this book if you only listen to yourself and not your truer self.
Do not read this book if you don’t dream about our true worth.
Do not read this book if you don’t realize that the elders symbolize the Living Past, the youth the Living Future, and you the living in the moment, shaping the Now.
Do not read this book if your nation is more important than your planet, your galaxy, your universe.
Do not read this book if you underestimate the endless possibilities of each of us.
Do not read this book if you think you alone can solve the mysteries.”

Published by Page Publishing, Michael Cowden’s engrossing work is an excellent choice for avid modern poetry readers.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “Wanted: Better Ambitions or…” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
