The Tremendous Tales of Tappy’s Travels : Episode 3 – Things are heating up!

Part of an ongoing series about a horse named Tappy leaving her town to discover the world beyond her stable. New episode posted every other Sunday. Scroll down to start at the beginning.

Tappy’s excitement quickly started to fade
As she entered a path that had no trees or shade
The sun’s angry rays blazed on Tappy’s course hair
She was parched but there were no signs of water anywhere

As her hoof burned against the hot gravel
She kept trying to remind herself of how far she had traveled
She wanted to stay strong and remain steadfast
But she really didn’t know how much longer she would last

She began to doubt her journey and what she was fighting for
She remembered she was fighting to prove herself, but what else more?
She started to forget the reason she took her journey due to the blistering heat
She wanted to continue but her body felt beat

Tappy thought about Puffer, her town, and what she was trying to discover
With some mental pep talk, reaffirmation of her goals, her body began to recover
It seemed as if she had gotten out of her hump
When she realized that she was no chump

Tappy never gave up and wasn’t going to start now
Despite any obstacles, she would always succeed someway somehow
Tappy had grown thick skin from being from the poorest of all stalls
She had always learned to get up whenever she’d fall

She started to forget the reason she took her journey due to the blistering heat

Then she remembered a time when she felt like she couldn’t go on
And Puffer stayed by her side and told her to stay strong

Tappy thought about Puffer, her town, and what she was trying to discover
With some mental pep talk, reaffirmation of her goals, her body began to recover
It seemed as if she had gotten out of her hump
When she realized that she was no chump

Tappy never gave up and wasn’t going to start now
Despite any obstacles, she would always succeed someway somehow
Tappy had grown thick skin from being from the poorest of all stalls
She had always learned to get up whenever she’d fall

“For too long I’ve been tied down because it is my state of mind,
But nothing can stop me oh no, not my kind
I’m a warrior, valiant and true
If I don’t fight hard for what I want then who is going to?”

So facing the heat, Tappy continued on her way
Thinking about next place that she would reach one day
“Although this present place isn’t necessarily the best,
I’m going to keep on moving and look forward to the rest”
