My to-do list

I have a to- do list cos I am thirty this year Top of the agenda is to ride bareback through fire Done many things in my short life My twenty todo list did cause me strife Wanted to walk on wings flying way up above My bravery ran out they had to give me a shove I did it, i perused the land from on high What a beautiful thing, this variable sky Back to the circus ring, my stomach did flip Thoughts of why the heck did i think of this Brought out this Black Stallion with nostrils aflare Grabbed hold of his mane he gave me a stare. We hadnt even started yet my hands they did sweat Then I saw the large ring, no flames afire Wanted to slink  off and forget i was here As I got up close my nostrils held that smell The oily rags lit up were as hot as hell Lit up was like a giant firework display Riding through it, oh my did i pray The horse didnt flinch  as I fell around his neck and cried Thank you Black Stallion for being a safe steed

I think riding a horse through fire may be on my top twenty things I never want to do, lol. Since when did thirty become the new extreem sports age. This is a wonderful poem, I definitely would like to visit more often. Maybe this is some imagery or some welsh tradition I don't know about, not that I know any, but the poem is a good story. Great work
