Fall of Life

Life is the fall,

when the leaves

turn yellow and the acorn’s fall,

tumbling down to a

lesser known existence,

between which you know

not where you are

headed, or when you

may develop,

while waiting for moments;

when you matter,

are stronger, larger,

here for a more important duty.

To show

what you can become, and

what you can do,

for the only one that counts…
