Set the clock to zero, forget everything you know
Remember nothing, even your name forgo
Do not look back or check your phone
Leave all gadgets at your home
Wear sturdy shoes and soft socks or boots
Pack a jug of water, nuts and dried fruits
Close up your house, cover mirrors, and lock the doors
Throw your keys away, there’s a world to explore.
No air conditioning to make your lungs thick
No constant hum of electricity keeping live the sick
Disconnect from society to find your humanity
Remember natural laws like seek shelter, find gravity
Feel the blades that you walk on give way to the leaves
Heed the chuckle of streams, find the wisdom of trees
Catch the warmth of the sun, the chill of the night
Greet the symphony with no conductor in sight
Feel the life that is living, not taken for granted
Step the rocks, conquer hills, and climb up the branches
Until you’re told by the clouds, wander near or traverse far,
But do not presume that you know who you are.
Your understanding of how the world works
Has been made up of lies, explained by idiots and jerks.
They know nothing, but you soon will
If you learn to listen to the earth’s active still.
