Scarred Bark

Tall barren trees with fallen leaves  
Outstretched arms as they grieve  
Praying for relief only given by the Sun  
Always in the crosshairs of man's gun  
Wanting to run before someone yells timber
Evading the fate of being gone 'til November  
Embers of their dreams are being extinguished  
While many take a blind eye to how they're anguished  
Some choose to still wish upon the falling stars  
Even though their barks are stark with keloid scars  
From afar, where you are, they seem to be whining  
Ignoring how, during every season, they are dying
