An artist’s life is no simple game,
Whether hobby or quest to fame,
It is your own doubts you must exceed,
If you ever hope to succeed.
Though through it all you feel alone,
You find a place all to your own,
Where fellow artists can grow and converse,
And sketches are sent to their trash bin hearse.
You make friends with similar interests, too,
And with time these friends become dear to you.
Where pencils and paper are like water and bread,
Where art pieces ooze from your head,
Where those with heart can work their hardest,
Is that place, a haven for the artist.
Just a very quick little poem I did for school. I'll admit it got really heartfelt and I just felt like sharing it. Also barf-bags are in the back, HAHA. ^^;

be proud of what you've accomplished and years from now, don't put yourself down for what you did today if you stumble upon it again. always love what has come from your mind that you worked at. that is the healthiest environment for the mind to flourish.


:la:

yes.

^^: advice is always easy to give... but hard to follow (especially from the guy giving it. hahahahahahaha oAo )

but then again trying an failing and getting back up is half the fun. who wants to be one of those losers that gets everything right the first time, anyways? :lol:
