I'm a dependent green leaf in Autumn

Clinging to a branch, fearing the bottom

The weather seemed to dislike my persitence

It made an oath to bring me down and hence

The wind came blowing and showed no mercy

It had all the branches dancing on a sad symphony

On my right and left, I saw leaves falling

I looked up and saw a dark cloud coming

The leaves beneath me put on a yellowish dress

That arouse in me feelings I can't express

It was the color of grief and death

It was another outcome of nature's wrath

My greness was fed by my MOTHER TREE

Suprisingly, I liked being dependent and not free

I wouldn't trade my green color with theirs

Because as soon as you're down, no one cares

I suddenly felt drops on my skin; I looked up

And saw that the weather called for back up

Rain came down like sparkling swords

It wounded all including barons and lords

Under my feet,there was a stream as if a snake

It was running without taking a break

All the yellow leaves followed its lead

How would their lives be now that they are freed?

Impressive !.
While I was reading the poem I kept trying to have my own explanation to it , but it could have meant way too many things .. which is amazing.

I mean it could mean anything to anyone , everyone can relate to it.
n it's really well written, I enjoyed it.
Keep 'em coming bro, I would love to read more.
