Conquer the world – Just a horse ride

firehorse_by_kelmarino-d7reuhm

I,
A horse,
Awaiting
Her brave rider.
I am not  choosy
Neither am I easy.
The rider’s will matters here.
I won’t be conquered by the weak.
My language is persistence and strength.
Control your mind, believe in you, you’ll win.

Lake of bright fire
Beside, blue green river flows
Battle of equals

He
Falters,
A deep breath,
Remounts, tenth time.
I    struggle,    he      too.
I   won’t   give  in  to  him,
He  will  not give  in  to  me.
I, strongbodied, he, strongminded
Two  of  a  kind  battle  in  the wild.
In the end, the mind wins over body.

Fiery flames burn red
Swishing, swashing river runs
Win or lose, one will

He
Falters,
A deep sigh,
Won’t climb again.
He retreats fuming,
Blaming all but himself.
Prancing and roaming the wild,
I   await    a   brave heart again.
While he tells them he was unlucky.
Luck  is not a  language I  understand.

Water Fire war
One with greatest force will win
Lady luck then smiles
