Hero (Poem)

by Erika
(Coaldale, Alberta CA)

Dappled coat, dangling head
My hero trapped in a world
That is too evil for a gentle spirit like his
So wrong
Head down, the brown eyes shone
With evidence of a tender soul insideā€¦
Treated so wrong
I am at fault too
I promised I would never leave you
What did I do? What did I do?
Never forget that I love you
Your gentle soul could do nothing but forgive
I'm learning from you
What did I do? What did I do?
Lives forever linked
In a manner so few have seen
Bound by the love
Of a gentle pony and his darling child.
