The carefree wind whispers “Let go”;

Timid leaf, shivers “No

“Look” hissed the wind “your friends have gone.

 – Quaking leaf “and I’m still home

“Jump!” tugs the wind; “Just let go!”

leaf trembling, “I don’t think so!”

“Stay here then, live with your fear!”

Leaf sighs “It’s all right here…”


“Not only are you afraid when facing the unknown, so is everyone else!”
