Life a leaf

From a small seed grew a plant
Giving birth to 1000 leafs 
One among them was a leaf
That had to grow on the edge
With the wind it sung itself
To and fro it worked itself
Looked like 1000 other leafs
But it had its own wish
To do something brilliant
Before it fell in autumn

The one little leaf on the edge
Clutching for its dear life
It was just hanging by a thread

Everyday it tried to look new
Getting by doing little and few
Winter, spring, summer it saw
Snow, sunlight, rain it felt
Just as every other leaf
The life he wanted to stick with his

But just as soon as the autumn came
Pale, dark and crispy it went
Clutching for its dear life
It was just hanging by a thread
A leaf that had to grow on the edge
Poor little leaf, slowly it fell into its fate
