    'Just a horse'

    I found this poem online today and thought it was lovely so I wanted to share it hear for anyone who had never read it.

    'Just a horse'

    From time to time, people tell me,
    “lighten up, it’s just a horse,”
    Or,”that’s a lot of money for just a horse”.
    They don’t understand the distance travelled,
    The time spent, or the costs involved for “just a horse.”
    Some of my proudest moments have come about with “just a horse.”
    Many hours have passed and my only company was “just a horse,”
    But I did not once feel slighted.
    Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by “just a horse,” and in those days of darkness,
    The gentle touch of “just a horse” gave me comfort
    And reason to overcome the day.
    If you, too, think it’s “just a horse,”
    Then you will probably understand phrases like “just a friend,”
    “just a sunrise,” or “just a promise.”

    “Just a horse” brings into my life the very essence of friendship,
    Trust, and pure unbridled joy.
    “Just a horse” brings out the compassion and patience
    That make me a better person.
    Because of “just a horse” I will rise early,
    Take long walks and look longingly to the future.
    So for me and folks like me, it’s not “just a horse”
    But an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future,
    The fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment.
    “Just a horse” brings out what’s good in me
    And diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day.
    I hope that someday they can understand that it’s not “just a horse”
    But the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being
    “just a woman.” So the next time you hear the phrase
    “just a horse” just smile, because they “just” don’t understand.
