By Ashley Bryant
Would you throw away a gentle heart,
to a man so mean and cruel,
and let it's equine heart,
Quiver in fear each night,
Would you let a free spirit,
hang by it's hind legs,
when it could be running in freedom,
with a care in the world,
Cause I know I wouldn't.
Would you let a beast of burden,
be burdened even more,
by the fear of being killed,
by an uncaring heart,
who dares to sleep at night without fear.
How could you let those hooves,
trod the ground of hatred,
how could you let a child cry,
as their best friend is hauled away?
How dare you sleep at night,
not thinking of those past,
not thinking of those dying without knowledge,
that anyone cares,
that anyone loves,
that anyone knows...
So let the souls of horses,
raggedy, old and scared,
float up to a place where children,
kind and innocent,
kiss their velvet soft muzzle,
and let them experience a life worth living...
