We Stand

We stand, quivering Facing the winds Our defense Our branches Flexible, spreading Raised to the heavens. Our hard trunks Gnarled with age Scarred, bent. We bow to life's Relentless lashing Swiping the ground Like Weeping Willows Begging the gods For mercy. We endure We break We lose limbs Yet we stand  Come rain Hurricane Lightening We stand facing the winds
