My Spiritual Self

I, Monica Harley, was born in Fort Campbell, Kentucky on April 6, 1981. However, I am currently living in Knoxville, Tennessee. I started writing poetry in fall of 2001 when I realized that I was half way through with college at 20 years old. My first poem, "Canst Thou Love Again," was published in…

Everyday spirits of people follow me
I hear them so much that no one can see
How uncontrollable the sounds seem
Without someone present my spirit is clean
When I close my eyes these spirits are in my mind
During the day they consume my thoughts until I find
The time at night to relax and dream of a perfect place
In hopes that I will live a happly life in the right space
