Where are we going?

Life on a Leaf

I sit up high, so far away, no one below can hear. I shout but never a reply, my words just disappear. I think of all the things out there, the person i could be. If i could just let go and see the world beyond this tree. And without even noticing, i'm no longer holding on.  The branches that surrounded me, just like that are gone. And i fall with birds full of colour following their flight. I could fall like this forever from darkness into light. I open up my eyes and i lay beneath the tree, looking up at all the branches that once held onto me. And i watch leaves fly, just like me how they tumble and fall. And i laugh to myself and the leaves laugh too. How they fall with no control.
