feelings of a man

To be on a hill on a tall dark horse,
With the wind
In a slight breeze
To take away the sweat from your forehead
And your steed
As look down at where you will be, with ease

Shining all in your full battle gear, 
The sun reflects of all your medals of heroism
Pinned up on your chest
Shining out the thoughts of your loves, shining near
Your favorite surrounds your own heart, 
You’re at and with your best

As you ready to go into the rift of blood and chaos
It is the loved ones on your mind that you protect
With your own life, as your heart will reflect 
A time in your life you enjoy a tear
For yourself, as you ride out to a possible loss
To meet deaths own door without fear, 
And feel more alive now than ever before 
with the souls you protect  
With the feelings of a man

thank you linda, I just found your note, I was seeing if I need to tweak a line or a word or two, thank you, I will check verlena when she has another contest, I do check often, to see what contests are running, but I don't enter many, I do not think I have enough experience for them yet, but at least I am treated so much better here, and not so rudely insulted when I go over their heads, or miss a capital letter,

thank you I had to redraft it a little it was not born to long ago, and needed the correct name that I got from contest,:) but waited till it was over, and it did touch many in a good way, that feels good it is like getting the feeling you write back at you

Its never been so easier to get the full picture of another man's imagination through a piece of writing.

oh it is funny I just thought of your thoughts I am not a man,:) never was, but I love westerns and documentaries on old battles, and I feel what they feel because as a mother I would get up on a horse myself to protect my loved ones, I may know a little of how joan of the arc felt,

I was actually afraid to post it, but another poet here inspired me too,
