Waiting with madness

I wait with anguish and sever hope and desperation
Hopeful that these rotten rusty bars will be gone 
I along with my friends here are in a state of depression and worry
Living life like this has been a painful challenging to say the least
Soon .Soon down they shall fall crumble, oh Gosh crumbling to the dirt
And yes we all will stomp the hell of out these cold confining pieces of metal
Oh yes we will run gratuitously to our hearts content 
And it would be nice to sit under a favorite weeping tree and lay contently resting -
And feel the warm sultry air pass through our manes   
Sweet noise ah the sounds of the night where I’d be my happiest searching for a mate
Just to feel the cool spender of emerald grass under our massive padded paws 
And to hunt our own food not some rotten substitute of meat that’s been kept cold
I want to chase down my prey with freedom and vigor while saliva spits of my jaw
I want to hear the patting of my victim racing with all its might 
Yes fight, the thrill of the fight while I hold my pray down with its last fighting breath
Dirt and grass would be thrashing in the air after each hoof passed in to mid air 
And then I will lay serene and full on the grass 
Cleaning the blood from my fangs!

    This was very strong. I love how you laced the ending. By the way, did you mean the last word to be "fangs"? Either way, great job! =)
