Proud Life



I saw the yellow leaf down river land
 some was out and some was inside sand
 I became wonder to seen their life
 there were indication of demise of leaf

My eye goes on near tree jade leaf
 as all were moving like others fend
 One of them has kaput as came down
 beside to same yellow leaf rand

 look like first was questioning with him
 how did you ruptured with leaf's joined
 he said a powerful blow coming towards
us and only have busted me from grand

 first said your youth has defunct and
 now you have to wait for death taste
 would not proud on youth and breath
 /after the demise, it cannot be mend
