Congratulations to Eric Arnold of Raleigh! His original, untitled poem, about mothers won his mother tickets to see Floetry on July 12 at DPAC. Check out his poem below:

I am a single mother; Yes and I’m proud 

Don’t need a man to validate my

Womanhood; I am blessed with a 

Beautiful child; it is hard to play

The role of mother and father but it is god 

Who has kept me and my child’s head above the high water;

The load gets heavy and sometimes I struggle to pay the bills

But I would do anything to make sure me and my child are eating

Full course meals; a mother and child that pray that god will

Keep them safe; if the father is nowhere
