Down And Out Poem by Anil Kumar Panda

Down And Out

Rating: 5.0

I am already down and out
I am almost dead and burning
Give me no more pain
I am already a fallen leaf
Flitting with the wind of summer
Wandering across fields and lanes

Don't think about me
In a few days I will be in the sea
In the tides flowing high and low
Getting lashed and losing my glow

A fallen leaf is separated from the plant and hence has to lose its identity is nicely depicted in the poem.
