We are like autumn leaves

The colors are always there

Beneath the green

Under our innocent beauty

The winds bring a fulfilling change

Tossing us to the side

Letting us leap through the air

We are like autumn leaves

That shine in the morning sun

That shrivel and thrash with its blaze

A heat so intense

We curl at the edges

A tinge of black at our seams

In the silent night

We take off
