The Fall Of The Autumn Leaf - Poem by Anahita Tahmasbi

The autumn leaf
falls so gracefully
happy to have been green once
glad now to be free
many storms it has known
many sunny days it has seen
but now its time to let it all go
and it does so, beautifully

    I feel as though the leaf is a metaphore to a human life... yet, we cling to life with furiousity that knows no bounds...

    Great Write Anahita! ; -)
