Leaf - Poem by Arvie Calimlim

The smell of the morning dew
Filled the soft breeze stirring
I watch as it slowly picked
The brown leaves falling

Wishing I was as light as the leaf
So that the winds will carry me
Far away from where I stand
Farther than what I see

I wanted to drift away
From the world I knew
Yet I couldn’t go
Coz a lot’s still left to do

If I could just escape with the wind
To a place where I will find
The enjoyment of nature
With the warmth of mankind

There are just to many things to do
And I’m getting a little weary
I guess there’s too much load
For one like me to carry

But then I thought
Everyone must be tired too
But not everyone
Has complained like I do

I guess its time for me
To change my selfish ways
I wouldn’t let the wind carry me
Coz I’ll be a leaf that stays
