The Poem

I gallop

Through the hedges of yesteryear

Unto the golden, glorious sun

Leaving the marshes behind

Into the arms of the open desert

I gallop

Mindless of the unknown morrow

With unwavering purpose and dignity

Unaware of the solitude

That lies beyond the world of hurt

I gallop

A pace of rage, the calmness within

Fearless eyes, I sprint with positivity

The cloud of dust, rises and falls

Dark bushes, clear skies, I skirt

I gallop

The warm ocean beckons me

Beyond the comfort of hearth

I intend to return, but not this day

My final steps from dust and dirt
