I Want to Surrender to Her...and die Wild.

I’ve lived my life in a cage; I want to die in the wild.

I want to crawl into the Earth and pull her rich, green grasses and flowered meadows over me, to cover me in her warmth, to take me home. I want to die wild.


I’ve been caged by my thoughts, by the rules of others, by the constructs of ignorance for too long—I lived these consciously and unconsciously and with the privations of a homogenized, gentrified, and domesticated society that I cannot understand and that cannot understand me.


I am a child of the Earth, not of man. My tongue speaks another language and my heart bleeds for another cause.
