Mom: A Love Poem

Poet Elisha Miles, 17 (who turned 18 during the competition), is a senior at Northside College Prep; she competed in Louder Than a Bomb 2011 representing her high school.

Her piece, Mom: A Love Poem, shares the story of a mother battling with her feelings and personal beliefs once her daughter comes out to her.

Though everyone knows the points are not the point – the point is the poetry – congratulations to Northside College Prep, who was chosen as one the four Teams advancing to the Final round of the 2011 competition which celebrated over 600 young writers.
