The Leaf

By: Stacey Marcus
Swaying hard with the wind
My mind becomes the leaf
Clenching to the branch of hope
Green with the youth
Of spring
Fearless of tomorrow
Red with the maturity of autumn
Curious of the future
Now the leaf must fade to brown
As winter demands
The time has come
To let go of the branch
Dare I drop
To the ground
Where in the end
All leaves
Become one with the earth
Is this my death
Or the chance for another beginning
