Galloping to Her Destiny


Galloping to Her Destiny

Hair streaming out behind

she holds onto the runaway horse.

Will she stay mounted

reach her destination

feel the golden glow

of getting there?

Or will she fall off

be left by the side of the track

or be carried elsewhere

by the whim of another?

A young woman on her life’s mission

she grits her teeth

tightens her hands on the reins

glories in the wind in her hair.

No runaway horse is going to come

between her and her destiny.
