Statement:

Lots, lots, lots of various kinds of leaves are living seeking for Sunlight & water,
the attitude of no concern with being happy nor being unhappy,
Just living for their lives, nothing to do with being happy nor unhappy,
very impressive with their gentle strength.

Under any circumstances,
they just simply focus on surviving.

leaves as they are,
we, shall have the same strength as they do.

Having strength in our hearts,
We could be kind-hearted, and could protect ourselves, loving ones, loving things.

Thanking to lots, lots, lots of leaves,
which enlighten me about what the most important thing in life is.
