Santa Fe High School in Galveston County, TX is the latest in an ever-growing list of schools to be shot up by disgruntled students carrying handguns and other weapons, and #sorrynotsorry , but this nonsense must end. Politicians whose pockets are lined with handouts from the NRA aren't going to change anything either (in fact, it's nothing but publicity for that disgraceful organization), but make no mistake: change is *required.* . So please, we're asking you to write a poem to inspire the change our country and our children desperately need. Write something to encourage the people of #santafehighschool , write something to our lazy politicians, or write something to call others to action. Write whatever you want, but please write, and then tag it with #herheartforsantafe . . Friday, we'll collect all the poems and mail them to Santa Fe HS to support them as well as to our lawmakers as a way of saying, "Wake the fuck up," because honestly? More than one school shooting a *year* is too many, but more than one a week? Just deplorable and shameful. . . This call to action goes out to all the writing communities on IG, too. Please join us in supporting this worthy cause, and share this post with anyone else who needs to see it. . @bymepoetry @artlixirpoetry @untwine.me @veinheartartisans @heartofpoets @penguinpoetrynyc @doortooursouls @tribeofpoets @avoicefromfaraway .

Our final poem today for the #herheartforsantafe campaign comes from @of_books_and_memories who has taken a refreshingly less violent approach to the challenge by calling out a list of the things we've been promised by our leaders. Unfortunately, it's also a list, that our leaders don't seem too concerned with for the last several years. . Thank you for writing this piece, Amrita. These are the kinds of poems we're hoping will gently wake the general population, and this campaign would be nothing without you. . . #herheartforsantafe is the tag to use if you have anything to say about ending gun violence in America, encouraging the victims of said violence, or petitioning our lazy lawmakers to get off their butts and effect some desperately needed change in this world. And please spread the word, too! Being poets doesn't mean we can't lead by example and #bethechangeyouwanttosee in the world. . .

Jules of @j.s.slightlypoetic wrote this poem. At some points, it seems like she's writing from the perspective of the victims, others from that of the shooter, and still others from the point of view of a deeply concerned audience. No matter the angle, though, it's apparent that this gun violence must stop. . Thank you for your contribution to #herheartforsantafe , Jules. We're confident this piece - along with so many others - will at very least show the people of Santa Fe HS, that we stand behind them, we feel their pain, and we know their fear. That's why we write. . We still have a few more days to get more poetry together, so please please please spread the word. Feel free to repost the original purple-and-orange slide to your story or wall, and encourage everyone you know to write something for the cause. Our children need us to create a safe future! . .

Poignant truth from @thisismegsmith today as we focus on #herheartforsantafe pieces. The rhyme is simple and catchy despite the disturbing and all too visceral imagery, and the message communicated through so few words is truth, the likes of which we're hoping everyone is enlightened to by this point. . Tragically beautiful write, Meg. Thank you, thank you, thank you for writing this piece for our campaign. . Enough is enough, right? Ten more kids died from the Santa Fe HS shooting. Many, many others have already lost their lives for no good reason this year from gun violence, so when will it stop? . Keep those poems coming! Remember to tag your works with #herheartforsantafe , too, because at the end of the week, we'll be collecting all the submissions and sending them both to Sanra Fe HS as well as to our lazy lawmakers. We'd love to have your work and others included in that parcel, so please spread the word! Let's end gun violence this week, together. . .

In our efforts to support the #herheartforsantafe campaign, today we'll be sharing a few of the works already submitted. . This one comes from Ashley Jane of @breath_words_ , and we couldn't agree with her #wakeupcall any more. As a nation, the time to sit back and let the politicians create change is long past; the time for prayer and urging lawmakers is long past; now is the time for "We the People" to say, enough is enough and create the change we want to see in the world - to *be* that change. . Thank you do much for sharing this piece with us, Ashley. Wonderfully and powerfully written. . . Please continue to write poetry for our Her Heart for Santa Fe campaign. We, as poets, are in a unique position to use our gifts to influence change, so please do your part: encourage the people of Santa Fe High School, call out lawmakers for their ineffective policies, or inspire others to take up the cause. It doesn't matter: all that matters is that you write and tag it with #herheartforsantafe . . . Please contact the author for permission to repost: ©Ashley Jane 2018 .

As you may recall, last Friday during the #fridaynighthearts show, we wrote a large-group collaboration poem for Mother's Day. . This past week, though, we played a bit of #poetrymadlibs , and everyone that was part of the chat pitched in - so many, in fact, that instagram won't let us tag all of them! Big thanks to everyone who participated and made this so much fun. ^.^ . These are the mad libs we came up with. The first verse is the original poem: two of the most mentioned poems from our #hhpweekendwonderings : . Fire and Ice by Robert Frost . and . An excerpt from "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe . Even if the poems are pure nonsense we had a blast piecing it together with everyone! . Every Friday we do something a little different, so make sure to tune in: 4pm UTC, 7PM PST, and 10PM EST. See you then! (: . . Her Heart Poetry Share ǀ Inspire ǀ Provoke .

Good morning from Hawaii, one and all... at least that what we'd be saying if, in fact, it was a good morning. @palemanpoetry here, and we don't usually do this kind of thing, but there comes a point when #enoughisenough , and America, we passed that point ages ago. . Santa Fe High School in Galveston County, TX is now the latest in an ever-growing list of schools to be shot up by disgruntled students carrying handguns and other weapons, and I'm #sorrynotsorry , but this nonsense must end. Politicians whose pockets are lined with handouts from the NRA aren't going to change anything either (in fact, it's nothing but publicity for that disgraceful organization), but make no mistake: change is *required.* .
