"To the stars,

     we look for our gods

Yet on Earth,

     we are devils unto ourselves."

"Life is in the living
 receiving is in the giving

 it's all here for the taking

 we're all history in the making"

"It's morning in America

 And the awakened have yet to sleep

 We're mourning in America

 For what we've sown, we must now reap

 It's morning in America

 The sun's 'bout to shine 'pon a brand new day

 And we're mourning in America

 Please take their guns away."

Kao Ra Zen is a multidisciplinary artist working in personal, poetic, and political realms. Much of Kao's art can be very charged, and his passion about the messages in his art is apparent. The work draws listeners, viewers, and readers in, as it reaches to establish  a connection with the audience through sonic and visual aesthetics that serve to accent the message. Kao discusses difficult truths about the world and himself and uses his creative catharsis to kultivate understanding and tolerance.
