“Lapè”

Written by: Kobus Bekker

There is this wild horse,
With a lot of force.
I can see,
She just wanna be free.

In her eyes,
You can see fear,
If only she could shed a tear.

She was brown in colour,
With a long black tail.
Surrounded by wire,
She had one desire.

And she knew I wasn’t a liar.
Her body was shaking a bit.
Unsure if she should trust me.

Her eyes told me a story.
That she one had.
It was so sad.
She always wanted love before,
And now she wants more!
