Free yourself,
From the confides of society,
liberate your souls,
From the forced exile.

Let society know that,
no longer will you
play by the rules,
of a preconceived notion.

That you must cover up!

Break the bonds that,
weigh you down,
that cover your roots
To the ground.

Remove those obstacles,
That allow your souls to feel the earth,
To feel the grass on hot summers day,
the textures of nature,
Below your feet.

Do it once a day,
Once a week,
Once a month,

In a park,
a field,
you garden.

Liberate yourself.
Free your soul,
Take off the leather bindings,
The plastic below you,
The suede that covers you.

Free your feet,
Take off the shoes, the stilettos,
Boots, sandals.

Remove your socks.

Feel nature below your feet,
Take the risk of standing in hidden dog shit.

Live life
Be connected to what supports you,
Gives you life.
And enjoy!
