Poetry Project!

Hey, all. 

 

Lately, I've been scrolling through poems on NMG, and loving everything, but finding the poems on equal rights for women, gun control, gay rights, racism and other topics that are important issues today truly inspiring. I want to read more poems from kids around my age. This might be a nice way to adress hot topics that we believe in and write poems about these issues, and in the end, have a collection of moving poems all from girls around the world, about important issues we all believe in. It is also a contest, so I will be judging the poems, but that's not the point of the discussion. If you don't want your poem to be a part of this, but don't want your poem to be judged, that's ok! The point is to feel inspired.

 

RULES

Must be tagged, "ihaveadream"

this is for organization. even if you're not entering the contest, the poems will all be in one place.

If entering contest, tag (as well as "ihaveadream) "ibelieve"

Must be about an important issue today, not about how pineapple should be on pizza

Put a "heavy topic" warning on your poem if needed

Deadline for contest is August 4th

EDIT: You can write more than one poem.

EDIT #2: Only up to five poems please.

Edit #3 (xD): You can only enter five poems for the contest, but you can write however many you want just for the sake of it.

 

Quick reminder that this isn't meant to be stressful. Just supposed to be a way for us to have a collection of poems on issues today. 

 

Can't wait to see your entries, contest or not!

    • Sure! Would you like to enter the contest?
  • Is Edit #2 for me? XD
    • Um, yeah. I just think there should be a limit on the number of poems you can enter ~for the contest~. As you might see above, I added another edit that says you can write as many poems as you want, but only enter five if you're participating in the contest.

Letting Go Of The Past

I sometimes have trouble letting go of things that I regret. I'll spend days just worrying over what I should have done better. How can I let go of the past and move forward? - Anonymous   Oh goodness, I can relate to this so much that it’s almost painful. The past—especially the parts of the past that we regret—does have a way of overstaying its welcome in our minds; I think it’s a somewhat universal difficulty, or at least one that many of us (including me) struggle with. The good news is…

When Friends Are Ignoring You

“At school, I feel like my friends are ignoring me, and don’t really want to be with me. Sometimes I don’t want to hangout with them because all they talk about is boys and crushes. So I feel like feeling left out and alone makes me a hypocrite, because stuff like that doesn’t interest me. But when I think about it, I think that all my friends have more friends they’d rather be with than me. Sorry if this is tedious. Any advice?” -Anonymous Gosh, I know almost exactly you feel. Especially with…

Crush Clarification

“Things have been weird between my crush and I. A few weeks ago, I left an anonymous note in his locker saying that I liked him, and he figured out it was me. We are still friends, but the note thing doesn't have any sort of conclusion! I want to do more, but I need a definite answer to the note.” -Anonymous Well if you want a definite answer, the best thing would be to ask him! Communication is vital in any relationship, and is really good for clearing up ambiguity. If you can, I would catch…

Talking About Tampons/Swimming On Your Period

So, I'm going to camp this summer, which is cool, but I'll be there at the time when I tend to have my period, and I don't want to miss out on swimming with everybody. The problem: I don't wear tampons, and my mom isn't that fond of them. But I might want to bring some to camp, just so I can swim and do all the athletic activities. How do I talk about this with my mom??? - Anonymous   Hi! That does sound like some slightly unfortunate timing. The good news, though, is that doesn’t need to…

Ask A Girl: Need advice? Give great advice? We help each other! Ask your questions or answer any of the questions already here. Your post will appear in a day or two, so check back often. We've had many girls ask if their questions can be anonymous, and that is not possible on this website. We want you to know that girls in NMG can trust each other, even with embarrassing questions. And if you want to, you can change your user name to a "not real" name that will then also be used in the magazine if your Ask A Girl question is published.

Letters To Luna: I'm Luna, the spirit of New Moon. Write a letter to me with your opinions and suggestions about the magazine and website. I love to read all your notes! Because I get so many letters, I can't reply online. But a select few letters get published in each issue!

Body & Feelings: Body image, mood swings, puberty, your first period, and so much more! The information girls need!

Check It Out: Share your rants and raves about books, magazines, movies, products, music, ads, tv, internet and more. Love it? Hate it? Let us know!

Go Girls & Women Change the World: Amazing girls and women make the world a better place every day. Tell us about who you admire - now and from the past.  These don't have to be people who are already famous!

How Aggravating & Howl at the Moon: Tell us when you see something that's unfair to girls and women -you can vent about it here! And, Howl out your accomplishments and the things that make you proud as a person and a girl!

Love Remembers: Whether it's losing a beloved pet or a cherished person, loss is painful and can be difficult to cope with. But talking about our loved ones and keeping their memories alive can help. Share your beautiful memories here.

Voice Box: We can have different opinions and still be friends and listen respectfully to each other. We're interested to learn about other people's points of view and we don't have to try to convince them to think like we do. This is where we share opinions about issues that are important to us.

Contests & Games: Do you love creating new contests or games for everyone to play? Do you love playing in them? This is the place for you to make your own contests and games and invite everyone to participate!
