About the Poem
I wrote this poem at a very low point in my life. I was suffering very badly from emotional hurts. Fortunately since then I have managed to overcome all those old hurts.

|by Ruwaida Van Doorsen
Like the last leaf on a windy Autumn day
I hang on, fragile but courageously
Waiting for the day to come
When the wind will stop blowing
So that I can be at peace
At peace with myself and everything around me
At peace with the world and all that it bears
Hanging onto a hope that is based on dreams
Hoping that my dream of surviving all adversity
Will finally be realized
But alas the wind is too strong
And like all other leaves before me
I begin to sing , so long
Sad and lost filled with despair
No one to comfort me
No one to care
No one to say, hang in there, be strong
So Iíll whisper my good-byes, and sing
My swan's song
