Spirits and Souls

Spirits and Souls

This poem was my first work ever published. Brainstorm magazine Fall 1991.

My advanced writing teacher asked me to submit this poem I had written for A final in class assignment.


"If you do not submit this I will do it myself. I know it will get published and if not what is the harm in trying?"

I agreed and watched my teacher stamp and lick the letter placed in the schools outgoing mail.


One month later I was attending our rival football high school away game and my name was mentioned in introduction.

Never would I have thought someone from a different school, whom I had never met would recognize me as .. The clever sixteen year old girl who wrote published poetry.
