"Collateral Damage" (by Joe DiMino)

Unlike age
Bending under pressure sky
Youth has stiffer

Though beneath the canopy
Weighting down
While less fruited the old palm
Yet with shade
Still gives comfort to many;

Youth oblivious
Excepting own height
And direction

Having little measure
Of collateral damage
The recognition
One grows thoughtfully into
When less above
And more in sympathy....
