You will have a dance to your feet
and your heart will be singing a thousand and one songs.

Zen says that if you drop knowledge -
and within knowledge everything is included;
your name, your identity, everything,

This will be a crucifixion of the persona, the personality,
and there will be a resurrection of your innocence.
You will become a child again, reborn.
