The Leaf

The blueish leaf 
just sprouted from two spirits 
so in-loved.
Sees the world in native eyes, 
lonesome lights and sounds.
Wonders of his breathe 
of autumn and spring, 
free air of life.
Dreams of the world 
all around his shallow legs and reach.

No more than three decades 
he toured his local islands.
Surf every little sea he can swim 
and bathe his soul's joy.
Seek every fellow leaf 
to be a partner in his journey.
Love them all, 
more than he wish he can do and live.

As part of cycle 
the leaf fell before fertile muddy ground.
And a new leaf sprouted 
from his wooden surfaced heart.
He saw the first joy he long no more than three decades.
Within the smile of a healthy boy 
from his own flesh.

Tried all hardships, 
endures all trials 
and destructive problems.
Shared all weary tears, 
holds all never imagined 
parting droughts.
Hid his fear between his two brittle  ribs 
and sealed it inside.
To protect the people 
between his present and sealed past.

For within no more than three decades of life 
he travels.
Meeting all different leaf, 
he loved and cared all round.
Between his shadowed honor 
he kneel before his pride
And speaks his own selfish feeling 
and childish thoughts.

For no more than three decades of breathe 
he now speaks.
Choose the best of what felt 
and you'll never face your darkest regret.
Plan all footsteps 
and you'll free yourself 
from bloody thorns.

And believe in yourself, 
you can endure everything you meet.
