Here is a poem from the lit mag:
"Fire" by Christa Gilray
Time and time again it is told
We will walk with death before we are old
This is our undeniable, destined route,
To die within before we die without
But from the path I am bound to stray
I can see the shining light in every day
I am alive, I am free, I am burning with desire
It's as if somebody set my soul on fire
Jody Jones, Language Arts teacher, is the advisor of the Aeternum.
