'So Long As There Is Life, There Is Struggle' -Harivansh Rai Bachchan-

Inexpressible pain
Like silence
Like a hand full of darkness

Feelings of fear
Feelings of being overwhelmed
By sadness

Loneliness hurting
Like a dance in the forest at night
With the wolves

Leaves having the sound of autumn wind
But color vivid like summer
And my heart, likewise,
Having the sound of autumn wind
But the beat of a summer midday

I have turned every leaf
Like a page in a book
Out of searching
For unwritten answers

They say you will never be happy
If you’re not happy all by yourself

All by myself
The sun is burning me with life
And the sky bruises me

This October
Immaculate queen of brownish hills
My heart is leaving one world for another

Like you leave life for death
And death for a new life

    like falling leaves be
    replace by new shoots
    to face next autumn
