Magnificently proud and defiant

He thunders along, never compliant

Snorting breath and nose a flare

With beauty and grace, his eyes do glare

His mane it streams in the air

With such elegance and incredible flair

He owns this land, this earth is his

This is his world, this is his bliss

For when you witness such poetry in motion

You are forever changed, overcome with emotion

Can man ever feel such proud independence?

Will he ever know such profound acceptance?

The taste of Freedom we all seek

The burden of obligations making us meek

It is time to break all these barriers down

And emerge to bravely face what we have sown

A new world order for those who care

To honour those few that truly dare

To raise their heads above the crowd

And declare equality & freedom aloud

A right for one and all to be shared

A day when humanity finally cared

I always feel privileged reading a poem written by you. There is something in your poems that makes me feel strong. You write from your heart, and you empower your readers through your craft! This poem doesn't intend just to sound good. But it's more of a desire to empower all of us though things and situations that are happening that are quite hard to deal with. Keep fighting!
