Autumn Leaf


by Elijah Muhammad


I am an autumn leaf
I wonder if I can glide
I hear the sounds of the breeze
I see everything else
I want to be green
I am a leaf

I pretend to be something I am not
I feel separate
I touch the ground
I worry if I won’t fit in
I cry that I’m brown

I understand my inequality
I say my kind matters
I dream to be green
I try to love myself
I hope I can love myself
              I am an autumn leaf
