Black beauty revised

Black beauty running free,

just like you are meant to be.

“Why don’t you tame him?” She asked me one day.

My heart did not know what to say,

as I watched him roam, wild and free, hoping he would come back to me.

“He needs no master,” I began to say

“He needs his freedom. The choice must be his.”

She nodded and moved away. I continued to watch, hoping he would stay.

My heart went with him, when he left.

And my soul healed, for I have been blessed;

with a heart to give, and a heart to keep.

For loving myself is just as sweet.
