Leaves (poetry)

let this nothing be something
let all these falling leaves pile together
days lived days lost
they do not come back
yesterday will never again be today
what would better have looked like?
are there steps to this dance?
if there are, do we want to follow them
be free
but remember freedom has a cost
let this nothing be something
but remember that something will always disappear
be free
make life something beautiful
this is all there is
this is all there is
do not squander your nothing
may your eyes be open
see whatever you want to see
be whatever you want to be
your something can be anything
don’t let it be nothing
