Young, green, and tender the leaves rustle in the wind. They cling on to the branches, refusing to let go and be blown away. They hold on, unyielding to the wind's breath. As the seasons pass, the leaves lose their youth. Come autumn, and they finally let go surrendering to the wind's mercy. They let go and embraced their fate for they knew that endings are inevitable. The cycle of life goes on and there was nothing they could do! In the prime of their lives, they had been young and stupid. They used to scorn and despise the old leaves that had surrendered. But as they turned into old leaves themselves, they realised that letting go wasn't as bad as they had imagined.
