It's basically for you guys, so if you wanna take a look, go ahead <3 Love you all so much!!
You Only Have So MuchHer fingers are dirty,
Her hair tangled.
She's a mess, some would say.
But at least her heart is pure.
His wrists covered in scars,
His stomach roaring with hunger.
He's damaged, some would say.
But at least his love is whole.
Her breathing is heavy,
And her skin is pale.
She's dying, some would say.
But at least she knows how to live.
At least a woman without a house
Knows how to make a home.
Hand her a loaf of bread,
And she won't devour it,
Because she knows how to treasure
The beauty in life.
At least a boy without a smile
Knows how to hold on,
Longer than someone who's never fallen,
And never dared to learn
How to fly.
At least a girl in the mobile chair
Knows how to capture a moment,
Because she can't quite be sure
How many moments really are
At least someone with so little
Because when you have so much...
You only have so little.
Gun Within The MirrorIt feels as if my reflection
Points a gun at its own head,
As my bullet shoots the mirror
And paints the floor with red,
And it feels as if my gun
Just isn't steady in my hand,
Because darling, when I jump off cliffs,
Do you think I always land?
It feels as if the razor blade
Might be my only friend,
And it feels as if the broken glass
Might soon begin to bend,
Because my reflection is distorted, love.
Can't you see that, love, can't you see?
I'm pointing a gun at the mirror,
And the mirror points back at me.
A letter to my watchersSmiling through your pain,
Till the wounds stop bleeding.
Running through your clouds
Once the sky stops raining.
Never saying never,
Going faster, stronger, better
Even when the
Raindrops seem to fall down forever.
Till the birds start to sing, and
Happiness overwhelms you,
And a smile takes over your face
Now and eternally.
Surviving through the pain,
Until the wounds stopped bleeding.
It never seemed it would end,
Crying, screaming, dying...
Indeed it did, it
Even when the raindrops would never end.
His BallerinaA gown of silk, flowing as a stream,
Her footsteps so gentle, perhaps she was a dream,
As he crouches near bushes to glare at the unseen,
And she danced like ballerina.
Her fingers combed her golden hair,
A perfect lady who didn't care
To see the man that would never dare
To touch a ballerina.
But desire grew, and patience died,
As a lovely girl danced before his eyes,
So he buried his heart, pulled out a knife,
And tickled the ballerina.
She fought his hands, in fear of death,
A dirty blade sinking through her chest,
For he would never settle for something less,
As she screamed,
She took her final breath...
And the wind grew calm, barely blowing on the stream.
Her voice so quiet (perhaps it was a dream).
As he closes his eyes, cradling his queen...
His beautiful ballerina.
Maybe.Fist fights and battles in my head
I'll always remember what you said...
The day you lied.
Glass shattered all over the dirt
I'll always remember your last words...
The day you died.
I could have saved you, love.
I should have saved you, love.
I would have saved you, love...
Then maybe we could both still be
Mama's EyesShe said to her daughter,
And her little girl
No longer little
Looked up in her mama's eyes,
And Mama thought nothing of it,
Till her little girl
No longer little
Never looked up in her mama's eyes
IdolizationIdolization is a strange and dangerous thing.
Yet we all do it. Either aware or unaware.
It all starts when we see an artist here whose work we like a lot.
Most of us have been there. Seeing the work of an artists that hits a soft spot in you, for whatever reason that might be.
You admire it, but at the same time you feel sad because you realize your level is still miles away from this artist, and you will probably never be able to do the same.
But despite everything, you start following this person. And you keep following him.
Because somewhere deep in your soul, you hold the believe --or rather, hope-- that when you watch it long enough, it will reveal it's tricks.
That it will inspire you in some way. And that you'll be able to do the same.
Unconsciously, we all build images of our idol.
It's human nature, I guess. We fill in all the blanks. The things that we don't know from this person.
Because an idol isn't a person anymore at that point. It has become an ico
Popular artists and arrogance: RantThis is somehing I've been wanting to write about since almost forever but I always forgot what exactly I wanted to say once I opened dA. Which I did now too, but I will try anyway because otherwise I'll never get to it. xD
So what I was wondering is, why is it that as soon as someone has a certain amount of watchers/pageviews/attention/whatever, that people suddenly start to assume they MUST be arrogant?
I've seen this SO often before and it bothers me to no end. People don't even KNOW the artist personally, but they just randomly assume things about them. I've had a few people come up to me being all "wow I thought you'd be arrogant and all until I actually started to talk to you". Which, in some way, really surprised me. I don't really consider myself "popular". It doesn't feel like I am, I don't feel like I'm an artist a lot of people know. I feel like my watcher count is that high simply because I never moved accounts. A lot of those accounts are inactive now anyway.
Stuff on LGBT topics that I want to shareI think I'll make this journal here a journal where I share stuff related on homosexuality and possibly other orientations, as it catches my interest and I know some of my watchers are interested in this too.
June 17, 2014:
I found this documentary about homosexuality and Christianity/the Bible. It's about Christian people who had a homosexual kid or turned out to be homosexual themselves. It's one hour and a half long, but I found it interesting enough to share!
June 15, 2014:
I found this article on homosexual males raising a child, and I found it interesting because a lot of people question whether such couples are capable of that:
I found it rather interesting and felt like sharing it. The article does not mention whether this goes for female homosexuals too, but I thought it was worth sharing nonetheless!
Stronger than SuicideYou are so much stronger than suicide.
You are so much more powerful than the cuts on your arm,
And so much better than your eating disorder.
So much more than your scars.
Please look me in the eyes,
And show me your wounds,
Whether they be on your forearm,
Or your heart.
Have you been skipping meals?
Have you been cutting?
Well, here’s something for you to try.
Think one thing,
Just one thing,
Just remember to prove to the world,
Are stronger than
Dear Daddy, I hate you.Dad,
There's something I want you to know,
Because, hey dad..
I'm not stupid.
I know you're not going to be here
Something I wanted to say..
I hate you.
I hate how you've been there for me.
I hate how you made me who I am today.
I hate how you've always inspired me,
And I hate how you've been the best father anyone could ask for.
I hate how I know you enough to know exactly what you're going to say.
I hate how you know me the same way.
I hate how you love your family more than anything.
I hate how you've been strong just so we don't feel weak,
And I hate how you never gave up on us.
On your family.
On your daughters.
I hate knowing that it's going to be
I'm going to miss you, Dad.
... Daddy, I'm going to miss you.
And I hate you for that.
Before you kill yourself...Before you kill yourself,
Remember just one little thing.
There are places to go,
Where you have never been before.
How can you be sure those places are bad?
There are things to see,
Things you have never seen before.
How can you be sure those things are ugly?
There is a new tune to hear,
Something you've never heard before.
How can you be sure that tune is scary?
There are words to be said,
Things that have never been said before.
How can you be sure those words are hurtful?
There are dreams to be imagined,
Things you have never dreamed before.
How can you be sure that they are nightmares?
Darling, please don't give up.
Please stay strong.
Don't let go.
Devious Journal EntryThis is something I posted on my tumblr ( http://unicornsandbandsandstuff.tumblr.com/post/101280786487/okay-so-this-is-something-im-really-proud-of-iv ), but I thought you guys might like to/benefit from reading this too:
Okay, so this is something I’m really proud of. I haven’t engaged in any harmful activities in a week! I’ve been an on-off self-harmer (mainly cutting, but sometimes burning too) for over three years; I started precisely a week after my fourteenth birthday, and I am now seventeen. I have issues with anxiety, and when I was fifteen I lost my mother to cancer, who had been in-and-out of hospital since I was eleven. It was quite a frightening way to spend the first half of my teenage years, going to the hospital to visit her every day after school and at weekends. Unsurprisingly, at fourteen I just snapped and sliced myself up. The habit stuck and, at fifteen, I took it a step further; a couple of months after my mother passed away, I tried to kill
it's ~NOT~ a complimentCan I reiterate that?
NOT. A. COMPLIMENT.
God damn, it's not the 50's.
Putting your hands on a stranger because you like they way they look is NOT A COMPLIMENT.
Some random ignorant filthy street flotsam decided that it would be a good idea to let me know he liked the way I looked by smacking my ass. He unleashed from me a tirade of profanity that will echo down market street well into the future. I even got strangers to turn around and watch, which is a great feat considering all the bs that goes down on that cesspit of a street, most of which generally gets ignored.
I don't see how it computes that 'hey she looks nice' = 'hey it's ok to touch her'??? What part of the mind has to short circuit to think that's ok?? Look with your eyes, think with your mind, and LEAVE THAT PERSON ALONE. Didn't they teach that in the third grade?? FFS. He seemed surprised that I reacted the way I did.
I screamed at him that it's not ok

Resources/Advice-Stuff to Listen to While DrawingThis is a series of journals that I've wanted to make for a while, just to document all the things that have been of use to me and might be of use to others. No one has to read these, though! These can just sit here for future reference if anyone needs them.
Audio Books: Audio books are one of my favorite things to listen to while drawing! They are several hours long and—if the book is interesting—they will keep you motivated and focused for long periods of times.
My favorite Audio versions of books are: 1) ANYTHING by Jon Acuff because he is a hilarious person and he reads the books himself, 2) The Lunar Chronicles, 3) The Hunger Games, 4) The Everlasting Man (Narrator: John Robbins), 5) Orthodoxy (Narrator: Simon Vance), and 5) Mere Christianity (Narrator: Geoffrey Howard).
Those are my favorite audio versions of books. I like their readers a lot. There are other books I like that didn't have great adaptations (Cheesy 90's background music! ) or that I can't listen to f
