When Will I Be Free? - Poem by Kapil Nautiyal

Fall leaves drifting to the bottom, in a rout
Seeking independence at last, alas
To be crushed under feet, existence wiped out
Life ends...

...Come Spring
New leaves, new life, dependent on the tree
Pining for independent life - is that to be?
Fall leaves...

Beginning of an end,
Or end of a beginning

I am still thinking,
When will I be free?
