Single Moms

Poem By Eric Cockrell

the greatest heroes
in America today...
are the single moms,
out there, fighting and
scraping, working and
believing...
against all odds,
in spite of...
raising their kids,
loving their kids,
living for their kids!

Comments about Single Moms

Excellent. The positive side of the life of the single moms is wonderfully written.They love their kids and live for them and not for enjoying life.100%
Have to agree with Dave, I was very lucky to have both of my parents for as long as I did. But her sister my aunt Maria raised seven kids all by herself after my uncle died. It takes someone very special.
A lot of single mums can go through so much with help from no one. A great poem.

a child is dying.
for every barrel of oil that
you drill and spill,

for me to draw
a picture of your living
in black and white...

the oak tree grows.

a child will know.

A Badge

he wears her like
the badge of honorable

I Quit

i quit trying to save the world...
and just offered my hand,
and walked beside it.
i quit trying to find the truth,

A Buddha's Eternal Moment

one lone rose
opened by the sun,
the faint memory of rain,
and the dark damp earth.
