Four Horses of the Mind - Robert Bourne




At times I wonder
Where my mind goes
As the four horses
Seem to thunder
In different directions each
Love,anger emotions all
Feed them a witches brew
Pulling me in very way
Till I harness the beasts
Control by thought
Time a factor
Keeping all in check

Many days are passed
All in step as I
Dance through life

In a calmness
That gives me peace

Agony or ecstasy
Strains the reins
Of the eight thundering hoofs

As age passes my strength
Diminishes day by day

Replaced by a patience
Experience drawn
From past mistakes

Less wild rides
Across the hills
Of life and love
More focus from the beasts
