I wished for an earth that nobody wanted
Where we lived by our brows
And our fears we confronted
With awareness of the temporary
And distrust in the arbitrary
Where our goals did not sleep
Under anthills and sweets
And upward we trekked
Without rotting our teeth
I wished for an earth seemed nobody wanted...
