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!

    The Chain of Life
    When someone says life, you think of family. You think of dreams, of love, of freedom. The chain connects us all. From family to friend. Poor to rich…

Preparing For Your Period

“I feel very unprepared about getting my first period. I don’t know exactly what happens and I am really worried about getting it at school. I wouldn’t want to talk to anyone about it and I don’t feel comfortable talking to my mom about it ahead of time either. Would I be able to just use a wad of toilet paper instead of a pad for a day until I get home and can ask my mom for one? Where would I keep pads after I did get my period if I had it at school? I just feel uninformed and unprepared and…

Redesigning Characters

"Do you have any advice on redesigning characters? I have an old one I want to polish up and I'm not sure how to go about it." -Willa While I don’t have a lot of experience redesigning characters visually, I have a bit more experience with reworking characters that I’ve created in pieces of writing. After thinking about your question a little, I think that both crafts tend to come down to the same core pieces, so hopefully my advice will help you out whether you’re looking to work on visual…

Too Much To Do

“Yesterday I felt overwhelmed because I had more to do than I was used to (Lots of homework, after school activities and dinner). Do you have any tips for girls to feel less overwhelmed when they have a lot to do?”  - Anonymous Feeling overwhelmed by long to-do lists is a very common experience, especially as we get older and start taking on more responsibilities and commitments, have more time-consuming homework, etc.—so you are far from alone in this. (It’s certainly something I’ve had to…

Not a People Person

"Okay i am going to very very clear...I need advice from someone older than me. I am not very much a people person like I don't talk much around other people how would you say I deal with this?" - Anonymous Hi! I’m not very much of a “people person” myself, and am generally very shy and quiet in social settings, so I definitely understand this. As I know firsthand, it can be hard being less socially inclined than those around us… but I’m actually going to start by suggesting that, contrary to…
