Poetry Is Power: As Free As A Horse


They gallop around,

As free as the breeze,

Prancing and dancing,

Under the trees,

Eating the grass,

Smelling the flowers,

As free as the leaves,

They let their heart guide them,

In a world of their own,

Their imagination flowing,

Helping them along,

You know that you too,

Can be free,

Letting your heart guide you,

Through the flowers and trees,

Prancing along the river with only happiness,


You could be that,

So very free,

But you have to have the key,

The key to it all is one special thing,


You must be kind to others,

But that is not all,

You have to be kind to yourself as well,

To animals,

And even to trees,

Now that is the key,

The key to being as free as a horse

Just you see.
