I have a few poems i would like to share

I like to post my poems on horse forums because not a lot of people(except my english teacher) will read them anymore becuase they are all about horses,
Good and bad critisim(sp?) is welcome
They are all free verse I would have the other ones that arn't but I don't they are with my english teacher lol sorry

A Horses' Prayer

My prayer to you dear master is simply this,
Do not cast me out into the world to fend for myself,
For I can not live without your care,
Feed me all I need,
And the occasional treat no one knows about,
Make sure my water tank is filled to the brim,
With cool clear water,
And in winter break the ice beside the cold,
So I may drink my fill,
Be certain I have a comfortable, dry place to sleep,
Make sure the bedding is soft and clean,
Despite my attempts to dirty it,
When we ride, put me on the softest ground,
So I do not hurt myself,
Let me run my hardest,
And teach me how to be a better horse,
When I do not understand be patient and do not yell,
Try again and again until I understand,
When you have a bad day
Be certain I will be there for you to vent,
And may I be certain when I am frightened or hurt,
Will you do your best to make it go away?
And my last request dear master,
Love me unconditionally,
Love me until you are certain your heart will burst
In the hours you are away from me,
Love me and I will love you,
Amen

Ya they are kind of long, but i've heard they are good, lol next one

I am a horse lover

I get up early in the morning to feed my horses,
Despite the cold of winter, or the calling of sleeping in in summer.
ďBreaking inĒ a new pair of jeans is my favorite thing to do,
Especially if I can get away with wearing them to school the next day.
Hay is an expected company in the pockets of every jacket I own
And even some shoes.
I have a huge backyard and only my horse and I know its secrets,
Including every hole and good hiding spot in the trees.
Some people think Iím quiet,
Thatís because they havenít talked about horses yet.
I donít take being pushed around very easily,
Even from people.
I have rough hands and knees, but strong arms and a strong mind come from both.
My hands are steady, hard and demanding,
But soft and caring when the time comes.
When I fall,
I donít back down.
Despite a bruised back, leg, or arm, I get back on.
I am a horse lover,
Get over it.

Ok last one this one is sad sorry lol

Nightmare

I walked into the barn this morning and saw him,
Laying lifeless in his stall,
His warm neck, cold,
His soft nose, hard,
His sparkling eyes, closed and lifeless,
I try to rouse him from his slumber,
But i'm too late,
I scream but no sound comes,
I try to run to get help, but my feet are glued to the ground next to his still body,
I collapse on him burying my face in his mane, expecting warmth and reasurance,
But I get none,
What am I to do now?!
That sudden thought hits me so hard I stumble backwards into the wall,
Staring horrified at him,
Fear knots in my stomach,
My mind screams at him to stand, to shake his neck
And look at me with his joking brown eyes,
Nuzzle me with his nose saying good morning,
But he is still, and my world is dead
I wake screaming, and run outside to the barn,
And there he is, my prince, standing in his stall,
Watching my with his loving eyes,
It was only a nightmare

I actually have this nightmare quite fequently I don't know why though its crazy and messes with my sleeping habits lol
Well I hope you liked them all

Aww those are very good. Haha, I dislike when non-horsey people get annoyed if I even talk about horses a lot. So I can understand why they wouldn't listen to your poems- even though they are great!! They don't know what they're missing.

Success comes a [bit] at a time.
