Leaf

I am nothing but a leaf,

One of many on a tree.

Watch me sway in the wind,

And wish I was high enough

To feel the breeze.

I am attached to the branch,

Watching the other’s fall,

Hoping not to be next.

One day a woman came along.

She didn’t spy anyone out,

But it was I that she picked.

I held on for as long as I could.

But she pulled and pulled.

I was ripped apart in her hands,

Made into shreds,

And then thrown away,

Who cares where I land?
