The New Leaf

the leaves remained green on the tree
year around
neither new nor old
just a shining green that
greets the sun and wakes to a new day.

the new leaf came on that day
pushing the old away
leaving a scar that spoke of loss and fear
the old was gone and the new
hung in it’s place.

they did not think of the cost
until the need for the strength
of experience and the wisdom age brought
left them
hanging useless.
