I wonder what it takes to just walk?

I wonder what it takes to just walk?
Not wondering where we are going,
Not wondering who we are leaving behind,
Not wondering when the death will finally free us,
Not even wondering how long we could just walk.
So long as we could just walk,
Driven by the hunger of walking,
Not needing any food, water or shelter,
With no emotions to bother,
No place for anyone in our heart,
Except for a drive to just walk.
To walk out of each of the lives we have ruined,
To walk out of each of the relationships we have spoiled,
And even walk out of the dreams we had seen.
To become a walking corpse that rots in the sun,
Which animals bite off and run,
On which children throw rocks and muck.
I wonder what it takes to just walk?
