“Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine
and puts them into practice is like a wise man
who built his house on the rock.”
A feral foal will stand at rest –
Allowing grooming, no protest.
Though burrs be tangled in his mane,
His energies he may contain.
He’ll hover there for human care,
With equine heart a-beating fair.
No stranger may approach him thus,
But those who bend to earn his trust.
Such high horizons beckon all,
Where courage may send fear a-fall.
These interactions school the soul,
Eliminating crowd’s control.
We need to bridle burning pasts
To build a legacy that lasts.
For saddled with concerns untamed
We merely march in meter, maimed.
The wisest man knows how to live;
To temper stress, one must forgive.
May sound a bit naïve, but true,
That crossing boundaries lifts view.
