Glory of Autumn



I watch the trees shedding leaves
As I silently shed my old self;
Reinvention is a necessity
From time to time.
I let go of my old beliefs
That're inhibiting my growth;
The glory of autumn enthralls me
The absolute magnificence in pain
Inspired, I mirror the season
Unafraid to let go.

  11. As unafraid to let go as the falling leaves, which know they are dying into new possibility. Sigh. Wonderfully wise.

  12. I like the comparison of the trees shedding leaves to the way we shed our selves. Nature continually invents itself, and so indeed should we!
