Biography of cheryl davis miller

I'm married,35years.I have 2 grown daughters,3 grandkids.Live on a small farm in Ohio.Came from W.Va.
Parents divorced when I was one, and I was given to an Aunt to raise. At 13, she thought I needed to be with my 'real' mother. At 14, my 'real mother', thought I would do better with an older brother. at 14yrs. and 2mos. I decided, I would do better on my own. So I lived many lives in the next 5 yrs, until I married.
Since then I have lived a quiet life.I have scribbled since I was a child. Learned to read from looking at poems my mother had read, and I had memorized. Daughters show no interest, but grandkids may! I hope anyway!

The Bird

I hit a bird the other day;
did not slow down and did not sway.
My mind was too pre-occupied
to act; so we would not collide.

Wiping a tear as I passed by
my guilt and shame I'd not deny.
Instead I'd vow to slow life down;
drive slower as I go to town.
