Autumn Leaves

Posted on Updated on

I am an autumn leaf
Soaring through the air
I am free as a bird
Without a worry or a care

Then suddenly one day
Without a warning in sight
I am forced to the ground
Like lightning to a kite

Suddenly I’m broken
Lying in pieces on the ground
I’m ripped and torn to shreds
And there’s no one around

I lie there for hours
Hoping someone will appear
But when they do
They confirm my fear

Instead of picking me up,
And taking me somewhere sound
They kick me into the gutter
And leave me to rot on the ground

I am an autumn leaf
Left to rot and die
Forgotten by the world
As I wonder, why?
