Turn Off and Live

Disconnect from the outside world
Turn off the phone and television
Turn down the music and electronic noise
I want to go through withdrawal
Let my body tremble, shiver
Shake off the currents, status updates
And constant scrolling through feeds
Put it all away, letting in
The silence
A big gasp of air, eyes flickering to the light
Adjusting, adapting to life
Rip off the tags and exist
Embrace world
Looking up at the sky
Instead of melting into a screen
Lie back, feel sun upon my face
Wind through my hair
And rain upon my hands
Disconnect and explore
Turn off and live
