A Happy Mare

Breathing in the fresh morning air, clear and crisp, a peaceful mare
Ready to munch on piles of hay, nothing to do but enjoy the day
Easy and slow, all feels right, feelings of safety through the night
A nicker, a whinny, her friends do call, beckoning her to come from her stall
Together they wander through the fields, stopping to nibble the grass the ground yields
Her heart is joyful in this new home, where there are acres for her to roam.

Mustang

Save the ponies
and set them free
give them back
everything
people have stolen
unbroken, untamed
release them
into the great wide open
for that is where their hearts remain
its not kind, what we’ve done, trapping them here
can’t you see they are slaves to our whims
all this delusion we’ve sold ourselves
traitors and trappers, the ways of men
inflicting harm and pain
on souls who shine brighter than the stars
never wishing harm on anyone, their only wish to live wild
set them free.
