The Horse’s Prayer

The Horse’s Prayer, by Unknown

I would like to be your loyal companion
rather than your conquest.
Learn to talk to me, I will understand you
without making a mistake.
When your hand is firmly on the reins
then I will take you where you want.
Trust me as much as necessary,
my loyalty will not fail you.
Don’t be afraid of me,
I have strength to help you.
If you must fight,
take me
I will watch over you.
If you were to choose only one friend,
I would be that one.
