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…

Drama vs. Empathy

There's a lot of stuff going on at my school right now - a lot of personal drama and just plain rudeness. Even if the frequent judgmental comments are not aimed at me (though they were last year), whenever it happens around me I start to feel a bit ill. I guess one could say I'm extremely empathetic when it comes to these things. I've talked about it with my parents and teachers but haven't completely revealed the full extent of it - I'm really nervous about standing up and I hate it. I've…

Operation: Support NMG Artists

In lue of the message board Julia created back in September (about NMG having a popularity/heirarchy issue where people feel unnoticed) I wanted to do something about it. While this is very common problem throughout all social media platforms, NMG is just small enough where we can band together and make a difference. Therefore I’m starting this “project” if you will to make the initiative to comment on fellow NMGer’s drawings (and other creations of course! But since art is my main focus,…

Dealing with Jealousy

“I've recently really been struggling with jealousy- typically having to do with my friends family lives, hobbies, or other friends. I understand how toxic it is to feel this way. Do you have any tips on how to avoid feeling sad for missing out and other things like that?” -Anonymous I feel you--I’ve dealt with a LOT of jealousy over the past several years. First, I wouldn’t think of feeling jealous on its own as toxic--rather, what’s toxic is letting the jealousy negatively affect your…

Feeling Like a Second Choice

“I feel like I am always the second choice for my friends at school. They always want to sit with other people or work with other people. They are not mean to me or anything and I think they do like me but I dont think they like me as much as they like anyone else. I feel like I am overreacting about this and I dont know what to do about it.” -Ellie Oof I know how you feel, Ellie :’( I’ve struggled with feeling like my friends’ second choice for years, it really wears down on you after awhile.…
