These Leaves

I believe that leaves grow on the strength of their trees

So that one day they leave and reach for new feats

And these leaves that grow too fast, soon break free

And roam the pastures of uncommon things

And I believe, like these leaves, we too grow from seeds

Sowed in us by the nurturing of a loving family

So that we leaves may soon leave and roam free in the breeze

With the wisdom of elders planted in our beings

We leave the trees to be all we can be
