Shaken Leaves - Poem by Craig Turner

I havent felt the urge,
To self destruct when I should,
I cant shake you loose,
Maybe I just dont want to,
An unconcise decision devised,
Greets me as a surprise,
Met with such a surge,
Letting go maybe I should.

Taught to learn,
Let me make mistakes,
And do them again,
Pushing around a rake,
Clearing up the leaves over turned,
Whilst learning to change,
Losing the urge,
To self destruct, Maybe I should.

    This is a well penned poem, like trying to say 'let me grow', it reminds me of a poem I wrote titled 'TREES AND LEAVES', I hope you have the time to read it....Keep it up, you got my vote 10+++ (Report) Reply
