Favorite Quote:
"Everyone wants to change the world, but do they ever stop to think about changing themselves?"
Leo Tolstoy

Beautiful, Colorful leaves
Dancing in the breeze
They mock me as they jump down
Why am I such an ugly brown?

Like brids of a feather
Us trees stick together
We watch in silent sorrow
As the piles of leaves grow
We feel as if we could die
So we sleep; goodnight and goodbye.

The author's comments:
I was inspired to write this because it's a metaphor about racism that I have faced. I also like fall when the leaves change color and fall.
