Her er et dikt jeg skrev en mandags morgen. Dette handler om dressurhester og hva de må gjennomgå for at mennesker skal bli fornøyde og vinne gylne pokaler.

Roam little horsie

You did your best to perform and please
while your body was suffering with pain and unease
the bits and the spurs and the whip and the gear
were all there to pressure you year after year

Nobody noticed the pain in your eyes
the pain that drove you to getting the prize
nobody saw the struggle you fought
while performing piaffe or extended trot

You started to ask yourself why you were born
only to see all your dreams being torn
no play and dreams and no will of you own
just painful work, then being left alone

You tried to understand what they wanted from you
but the pain made it hard to notice the cue
you often thought they would break you apart
to master the rules of the fine dressage art

But now the days of performing are over
you are free again and you will recover
so run little horsie, run over the field
breath the free air again, let your scars be healed

Roam free, dear horsie leave the bad times behind
your friends are there waiting, get some peace of mind
life is not fair, but you never knew
as a child what you later would have to go through

The harsh hands of men and the women you met
are a part of your life that you now must forget
if they could see what they did to you
their life would be nothing but a secret taboo

But now the days of performing are over
you are free again and you will recover
so roam little horsie, run over the field
breath the free air again, let your scars be healed

To all the horses that have been or are still victims of harsh human hands.
