Wild Horses & Young People Fight to Save Each Other
Melissa Farlow image
We were born to cozy warmth and milk
into the care of those with muscles to protect our fragile bodies.
We were born to grow strong legs and far-seeing eyes
as we followed the paths made by wise guardians.
Instead, Destiny tossed us to the cruel.
We hurt. We starved. We tottered, bewildered, from one hard hand to the next.
Until, reflected in each others’ eyes
We healed a little, forgot a bit. Too tough and afraid to
believe in love, we still dreamed of gentle hands held out, palm up. We dreamed
a mirage of hope.
The story of a girl named Robin, who spent years in foster
care, and her love for Rocky the mustang appear in WILD AT HEART.

Is the poem written by this Robin too??
Nvcowgrrl -- Nope, it's by me. I always try to get inside the heads of those I write about -- two or four-legged. Thanks for reading!
Did you actauly meet Robin?
Hiya, it's me again. Would you still want people to write letters to the BLM? When I did the letter-writing thing last winter, my school sent a whole box of letters.
