When I Was Twelve…

My parents are here to visit for the holidays and my mom brought a folder with some my writing from when I was a kid.

This was a poem I wrote in 1988, so I would have been eleven or twelve.

Not long after this, I stopped writing, except for what I was required to do for school. I will tell you all about why I stopped writing someday, but today is not that day.

In the meantime, read a poem written by 12-year-old me. IMG_7891

I'm a busy mother of three who fancies herself a writer, speaks in profanities more often than not, and spends evenings doing counted cross stitch. A staunch liberal and ardent atheist, when I grow up I want to be someone who doesn't care what other people think.
