Time and again it reminded,
When it was the bud,
Belonging to the twig of its colony.
Flurrying to its glory,
Growing to its full laminar stage,
With all its stipulary accessory mates ,
All the shines it absorbed,
and burn itself to produce the chimes,
To the world of callous mortals.
Eating, enjoying and merry making,
Forgot to give its ‘ customary mandate’ ,
To the leaf jarring from the twig
Tis now a solitary leaf falling from the twig,
Trampled by everyone’s feet...
It reminded, the once glory
A Lush green sparkling story
Where fruits of life grows
Thud – thudding the evergreen floor,
And our children looked and aimed,
With the catapult’s stones.
Now withered to Grey,
As the tears falling away it felled,
Covered the grass with the blood
Crimsoned in scarlet red.
Yes, the leaf, without its rumbling,
Waiting for the apologies
Lies lifeless without the eulogies.
yes!!, It’s a solitary leaf falling from the twig
Trampled by everyone’s feet…
Never have I given a thought,
Does my life like it’s similitude?
Where once I started afresh
Felt all the warmth and love
Now, I got jolted by calumny affairs,
Removed from the umbilicus pool,
Trampled by everyone’s feet
As I lost my own instinct.
As a dried fallen solitary leaf,
Fallen from a twig,
Trampled by everyone’s feet?
