A Horse

A horse has to run to be a complete horse.
Hobbled and corralled, he will never know how to run.
never know the freedom of expression, of having excersized the prerogative of "horseness" of running, of excersizing its own strengths.

why hobble yourself, rope yourself in with doubt and despair, you remember freedom, you remember how to run, if you cant run on the outside, run on the inside.
A person cant tie themselves to a time and place and think that is all there is no?

    For me, I got this message:

    You can be who you want to be, but only if you work hard to accomplish that. If you choose to give up, then you may never be a complete person

  • Thanks! I got the Idea from an old black an white movie. This old man rode this horse who looked like it was never allowed to run, it trotted funny, it wasnt acting..."horsey"? I wonder if it knew it could run?
    It was beaten, broken to life, the spirit was gone and it existed, thats all.

    I think the beast never knew it could... could run, could jump, could be spirited while still living with restrictions.

    Kind of like us at times, mearly accepting that this is all there is , all there ever will be,and so resign ourselves to this life.

    But do many remember the joy of self? of what we are, mayhap, of who we were and celebrate the fact of existance.
    We are... we are so much more than the sum of life right now, no?

    Celebrate who we were, and celebrate who we are, and then celebrate who we will become!? no?

    Here in this dusty and dry corrall, which is the limits to our world, can we not remember, can we not dream of freedom? can we not imagine the wind rushing by? the fierce longing for freedom burning our skin, in our blood, firing the passions to once again reach out beyond.

    I think that is the way of Spiney, we may be limited, by failing body, of fading strength, but the mind and soul are free to run the fields of dreams. I think our lives give us all the tools we need to exceed ourselves,
    Its the application of the tools to the task that is the difficult part.
    I wonder if horse knew as he walked down the dusty road that he was free?
    I wonder how many Spineys here on the little village on the web are free?
