a poem I wrote this morning, The Horse

I wrote this today. It was inspired by something I read in one of Mark Rashid's books (which I recommend to anyone who loves horses).


A horse's instincts motivate:
He does not have the power to hate...
He does his best to re-adjust
(He wants so very much to trust).
If he won't follow your command,
Be patient please, and understand
His goal is simply to survive
And make it through the day alive.

Adapting to the world of man
Was never in a horse's plan.
He'd like a herd that's roaming free,
But we have changed his destiny.
We love the horse, and so we try
To get him to see eye-to-eye.
Meanwhile, his wish is to survive
And make it through each day alive.
