With time, leaves fall

I’d like to think that as we age 
The search for validation 
 Becomes a search for truth and honesty; 
That, like this cherry tree, 
Once past the time we’re bearing fruit 
We glow briefly with accomplishment, 
Then humbly drop all that we were,
 Letting it fall to nourish what may come 
And stand with vulnerability 
 Exposed before the wind in humble testament 
 To what has been, now letting the world see 
Both what’s beneath and what’s beyond; 
What waits on the horizon.
