As We Turn

by B-Miles Jackson

As we turn from the century,
As we wake,
Look toward the millennium,
As the century turns,
Littered with the joys and trails of like,
Embark forth with a new beginning.
As we turn from the century,
As we wake under strange conditions,
As the century turns to the new millennium,
Hold tight to faith, family, and friends.

Barbara B-Miles Jackson, born in 1948, grew up in Texas, studied poetry as a student in school. The poetry of other poets inspired me to go forward, changing myself when I could not change my situation. I one child and two grandchildren., Later needing a way of expression and focus, I turned to writing poems. Writing reminds me, we must travel through life situations with as much grace and dignity as possible., I started writing in 1995 for an Open Poetry Contest with National and International Library of Poetry.
