Fragility In Falling

The dancing of forgotten leaves

Amid their tumultuous decent,

They are basking in their own Fragility

Swaying along towards the end.


When lines Cross and Cross and Cross again,

Weave the paths, roads, and straits that man must take.

No weathered path, nor tired plan

may soothe my unyielding sense, of our own unconciousness


Among the wretched and the dieing,

Man is forever falling,

testing his own fragility,

denying that, the shade should ever fall to rest.


All the while he is plumeting,

Falling, Falling, Falling,

instead of dancing, to

the end.
