'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.
