A Leaf

Poem By Mahfooz Ali

I have no control over my life.
I am born to die
that is the story of my life.
I terrified the fall which ultimately,
means my end is near.
I get stepped on after falling
by the nature's creatures
Who am I?
A leaf.

Comments about A Leaf

Mahfooz, like.Pd. I had to read this twice to really get the message. But once I got it I thought how wonderful you had put it, comparing our lives with a leaf. Very well worded and a nice easy flow to read. The more I read the more I really like your style. Thanks for sharing it. David
It's like a riddle when you read it for the first time. But after reading it a second time i realized this is so close to life, our life where we are born and end when we die, in the way we get stamped on, trampled, experinec fear, just like the leaf! Great poem! Preets

I Love My Family So Much.

To be a part of a family like mine
is so divine
where love is shown
hurt is shared

Open Them

Open them, open them
let the light shine,
Release the binds
of chains and twine.

On The Brink Of.

A wicked way the wind blows strong,
tighten the craft and strengthen the tie.
Ripping the sheets from the line does the
wind torment?

Because I Knew

I remember,
as a very young child mom's loving touch.
It had a delightfully delicious feel of warmth
and security upon my senses.

Why I Am Writing This?

Have you ever wonder why things change?
Why minutes are minutes,
or why hours are hours?
Have you ever wondered?

Thank You, Father

Fathers hold you when you have bad dreams
And they comfort you when all is lost it seems.
Fathers teach you to dribble a basketball and shoot a free throw
And they lead you as you grow.
