Freedom

by Barbara Miles Jackson

Freedom, a state of mind,
A reality where peace is found,
Peace, a safe guard,
Seek righteousness, seek humility.

Freedom, reinforced
by education's enlightenment;
Seek knowledge,
Seek understanding, seek wisdom.

Freedom!
Where accomplishment is a right,
Seek justice,
Seek equality.

Freedom, where love
And charity grows,
Seek the Lord
All you meek of the earth.

Freedom, gather together,
Gather together.
Freedom, a state of mind,
A conscious act.

In the Courtyard (B. Miles Jackson)

ABOUT THE POET ~
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. Most In the US and other in Europe.
