    As a former physically, sexually, and mentally abused person and current dog, cat, and horse rescue, this song got my attention. A woman puts her trust in a man to protect her and her children not hurt them. To have to walk out in public with a purple swollen face and beaten sore body, will teach you humility and liberation. The plight of the mustangs and companion horses these days is scary. So many sent to slaughter and terrorized before being butchered alive. They are taught to trust humans and in the end that trust is not worhy of us. The horses in my care will never see the blood of the trailers and processing floors. I pray a quick death for those sent on and an end to the round ups and slaughter and strength to the women and children to endure until they can be safe. Its not over now, we've been down but we've never been out, yes, we are the dark horses.
