Heavy cart weighting down the body plowing the field. Sun is shining and burns the eyes when looking straight into the light. Flies buzzing and locate the smell of oxen feces. A large tree provides a casting shadow where thoughts can rest. Dreams tasting of freedom, and cold breeze against the dark skin. The dirt feels hard under the hooves and stir up clouds of dust with every step. You feel a sneeze coming as the nose gets irritated. Green grass and apples on the other side of the hill. Oxen roaming around free from captivity, no longer kept in cages and sold as slaving working tools. Majestic animals, proud of their dark skin, but unable to reproduce.
