What if you were a leaf..
What if you were a leaf on that road? Distant from your tree and no longer connected to your roots. It would have been hard to keep up with the pace of the wind. Fragile lives we all lead. We want to stay away yet stay connected. Most of us cannot manage the many Whatsapp groups and those good morning messages yet we like seeing the stream active with conversations. We read it all yet never reply.
What if you were a leaf on that road? Alone and waiting for someone to pick you up and keep you safe in between the pages of a book. Fragile lives we all lead. We can’t choose how our future is going to look like. We save for retirement yet the time is no longer on our sides. While we plan our days, He prepares us for things we haven’t thought.
What if you were a leaf on that road? Thinking of the days gone by and watching kids play. Fragile lives we all lead. How we want to grow up and then wish to become a kid again. As we look back, the many things we have left behind and how these things make us who we are. Our experiences, life stories, failures and then our environment.
What if you were a leaf on that road? Shining bright on that dark background. Standing out and making your presence felt. How we want to stand out but forget the need to stay humble. In our quest to succeed, how we forget the need to get others along and enjoy the journey. For that need to shine bright, we overlook the beauty within and focus on what appears on the outside. Fragile lives we all lead.
Stand out, but by the work you do.
Take pride in what you do and go to bed without any regret.
Prepare for rainy days but don’t forget to smile and enjoy.
Listen with an open mind and talk with your heart.
Fragile lives we all lead and it’s easy to miss the big picture in life. What if you were a leaf on that road?
I am with Team #CrimsonRush and today is Day 3 of the #BarAThon.
