Female Poets Expedition Series

2016_0114_poetry_around_the_world.jpg

Poetry is an art of expression thru words. It is a way to tell our stories, our feelings, and our opinions about a subject. A poem introduces children to poetry and can help them to develop writing and art skills. Besides, poetry can assist people to overcome traumatic experiences. For these reasons, our project encourages girls and women to engage in Poetry.

Promoting poetry contests in our blog inspires females of any age. Knowing about other female poets around the World give us the support and the motivation to be brave.

Our series “Female Poets Expedition” invite you to embark on a journey and experience the World thru words. Giving all of us – women knowledge and motivation to write messages to change the way that society sees and treats us.

Female Poets Expedition will have a post every Thursday on our main page.

Our first stop is India… See you tomorrow!

Segregation

by Vanessa Daniela

Dark walls of copper hiding past bloodshed.

Fearing to be part of a new horrifying scenario of selfish minds.

Defining a fake pure race composed by the color wheel unification.

Vast spectrum and hues which are meaningful only on the diagrams.

Preference of colors is chosen by an egocentric society who has never been plain.

Nuance of your diluted blends is being denied –

by discriminating diversity and by forging your own identity and roots.

Shameless society – abnegating their own heritage to support segregation

Segregation of love and culture torn apart from your heart and mind.

JUST WHAT KIND OF MOM HURTS HER LITTLE GIRL THIS WAY??? (featuring the cry of a girl)  — by girlvoiceafrica

This nonsense needs to be stopped! The havoc that has been wreaked by Female Genital Mutilation is too much to turn a blind eye and deaf ear to. The fact that Female Circumcision is not biblical makes it totally non-negotiable. Its diabolic and typically an act of gender massacre. Female genital mutilation (FGM) is the […]

Poetry Contest: When You Fall

by  Laura Santner

Child,
You will fall
And oh will you fall far sometimes
And not know where to go
And not know where you went
And not know how to speak
But child,
You will learn
Take it all in
And write your sorrows
To find your joy again
Show yourself hope
That got caught in your heart
It’s ok to be uncertain
It’s ok to feel alone
Gather your strength
And I promise child
You will pick yourself back up
And rise
And shine
You will have these moments
And remember that despair is fleeting
Look beyond your dark days
Love your limitations
And think
Because new doors will open every dawn
And discoveries will be made
My child, oh child
You can be that star you dream of
But you must dare to dream it to begin

Reblog: My Attempts at Facilitating Change in Rural India – Girl’s Globe

In my final year of medical school, as I was reading a chapter on Maternal and Child Health, I came across a table of mortality rates elaborating the health status of mothers and children of my country. They were dismal and though I could see that progress had been made, to my 20 year old brain, […]
