    My poem.

    My poem isn't about horses but I want to know what people think of it. Australian People will understand it a little more that people from other countries.

    The farmer’s rains

    I am a simple farmer
    No more humble than that
    I live in Victoria’s harsh plains
    And I live off the land
    Not only supplying food for my family
    But for Australia

    I'm in strife
    This drought has broken the land
    And no more does it grow its luscious foods
    For my family or Australia
    I can’t sell the farm
    No one wants it

    My dad got through hard times
    Now I pray I can too
    But time is running out
    Rain is scarce
    With animals thirsty
    No tucker to fill their bellies
    Slowly selling them off

    I can't bring myself to move
    The family love it here
    But the dams low
    Cracked and burnt
    Maybe we just can’t survive
    But still I pray everyday
    To end out pain

    A tear no grown man should shed
    Comes rolling down
    I look out the window
    I can't believe my tear filled eyes
    I run out to the kids
    Shout to the Mrs
    The rains have finally come.

    It's beautiful
    It's some quotation you know in the end of your posts?

    The air of the paradise blows between the 2 ears of a horse

    All the happiness of the world is on the back of a horse
