I am but a leaf
Falling from the highest tree
Falling further until I can’t anymore
I land all the way down on the ground
In the middle of a road
I hear the cars approaching
Coming with a vengeance
Just as I give up hope
The most amazing thing occurs
The pure and innocent wind comes
And it saves me from the cars
It carries me towards the path
That I was meant to be on
And it helps me float and rise again.

this piece is very symbolic of when i was going through a rough time and a friend helped me out a lot.
