THIS SHEDDING TREE

FALLING LEAVES

We are leaves

Because I know the world is a gigantic tree

No wonder it is free

To live for long

Watching as leaves come and go

Without raising a hand to catch any’s fall

And if any of us  fall on its branch,

It does nothing to seize rotting.

To think we beautify it at a point!

But do I blame it?

It has many coming in after us

So I’d dance with the wind

Bath with the rains

Roar with thunder

The same things which may cause my fall

And when it’s time,

I’ll gladly take the lead as they usher me to a fall

Friends and foes they are
