Oh, if I could run free with the wild horses
I'd run and I would keep going and never stop.
Oh,if I could keen with my brothers the wolves
I'd cry sorrow and call for the freedom we lost.

If I could pick up my legs and just gallop away
my footprints would be pounded in the earth
If I could hunt with my pack , coexist as one
our cries would be recorded in a wild journal.

Oh if I could race out my heart and challenge
the wind
Even if I lost ,my lose would be mine to own
Oh, If I could speak the name of a word to feel
its birthing roots
If freedom were the word-then I am coming

droplets splatter on concrete earth,
and become seemingly one dimensional

Arcs of color twist and spread out
piercing the glare of a thousand
sky tears.

I've always wondered- what color
is the shadow of the rainbow?

If you look behind the metallic hues
of bright color- what will you find?

The last two stanzas are your stongest- the flow of the first two is a little awkward in places. But otherwise, nice idea and interesting perspective.
