Born amongst your horses

I looked for an escape

outside your sphere of influence

In darker shores far away

Misled by my own ambition

I ended up lost in the side streets

knocking on prison doors

shackling myself into false safety

Until one day I smelled the ocean 

and remembered the horses

as my heart skipped a beat

the scent led me out of the maze

following the road to freedom

back down to the beach

where I can be again

free amongst your wild horses

And this is how I came back running 

from the staleness of this dungeon

to the vastness of your heart

so that I can run again

amongst your wild horses

so that I can breathe again

the salty ocean air

One thought on “Untamed

  1. This is exactly how I feel when I take a great hike in a pristine natural environment. September 24-October 20, 2019, I hiked the Camino De Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, Spain. The villages, mountains, woods, small roads in the realm of daily nature was my religion, my freedom, meeting fellow pilgrims from around the world. I was in my element. Also, hiking the highlands in Greenbrier, West Virginia, USA, & the coast of the Indian Ocean in South Africa & the Tetons of Wyoming, USA & the mountains in Canada & the Amalfi Coast in Italy……I could go on…..bring on that Bohemian spirit. Thank you for sharing this beautiful piece. You are my kindred spirit and friend. Peace. ✌️🙏🎈
