Why do you judge?Why do you have the need to judge with your signs?Why do you judge? by maryjane5908
Do you even know why I am here?
Am I here just because I do not want the responsibility to be a mom?
Am I here because I am not in the right place in my life where I can take care of a child?
Or am I here because I was raped and he didn't use a condom?
Don't you know it is going to hurt me in the long run after I do this?
So how do you sit there with your sings and judge people?
FreehandThe blistered moon,Freehand by Emerald-Alexandria
Yellow and jealous,
peeked into my third floor
city girl's window last night;
Bright enough just to break through
the layer of Arizona red dust
but not enough, still,
to rip my eyes from the setting sun.
(Sorry, Moony, maybe you'll get your spotlight next time.)
I felt the breath shimmy out of my lungs,
heard the skeletons rattle in my closet,
and relished the faux reflected warmth
ripping through the starless skyline;
The twilight smells like storm clouds and poison,
So I take a swig on midnight instead,
burning like fermented acid rain should,
But it has a sweet silver rumble in my belly,
and I detect a tangy--
What is that?
Is it desperation, or last month's rent?
Maybe it's a dubstep remix of rapped jazz?
Hmmm.... more like bottled poetry and a monkey's paw.
Or maybe it's just gas.
The Worm and the EpiphanyAlas, the worm was blind. Making its way through fertile earth, never meeting a soul, not even its own. Not knowing kith or kin, it didn't seem to bother him as, day by day, he burrowed his tedious way through mulch and mire; heeding not the dark or the cold. Not needing to ask the question that never would tire because it never grew old. He was not simply "you" -- he was "it" who did not exist.The Worm and the Epiphany by jade-pandora
So on and on, as often goes with a worm, it continued the clandestine tryst to turn the soil. It was what he had learned, or was born having known. Was he born -- and born to toil? -- flashed a thought in the dark. Had he not? He never thought to ask it before.
Then suddenly, the worm broke through the crust of ground! It squinted hard into a blinding light, and basked in the shade of a sunflower whose head bowed low with curiosity, and promptly doused the worm with a shower of dew. And
Hard Won SunshineOn a good day,Hard Won Sunshine by Dreams-Of-Lightning
I've got sunshine in my veins.
A backlit smile,
And a spring in my step.
And people don’t think
I’ve ever known…
Faces in the night,
Looking for me.
Shadows on my face,
From lack of sleep.
People rarely think…
Of the ash in your bones,
The tar clogging up your thoughts,
And blocking out the light.
But what people think…
About how your skin
Feels tight when you smile…
What matters is…
It never stops.
It never gets easier.
Bad things will happen.
But if you can wait it out,
Last just a bit longer than you think you can.
You will get stronger.
And things will get better.
It might seem impossible,
But whatever you do,
Don’t give up.
Because I’ve been there,
Lost in the darkness.
So far down I thought I’d never get out.
I know how hard it is to keep fighting.
But I also know…
That you can do it.
Believe in yourself,
You are greater than you know.
Gallery Descriptions Month - win PRIZES!!!!!Galleries month
This month at projecteducate a group of Community Volunteers have worked hard to create gallery description articles for almost every Gallery here on DeviantART. Throughout August we will be bringing you these articles covering the definitions of galleries from Photography to Photo-manipulation, Artisan Crafts to Digital Dolls. If you have any questions about where to submit your work here on DeviantART then this month will be your chance to ask. Just head over to projecteducate, send us a note or comment on one of the articles as and when they are posted.
A whole month of articles at projecteducate deserves a celebratory contest, so we're going to host one that will hopefully get your creative juices flowing! Since the aim of this month is to reduce mis-cats and help deviants re-classify their work correctly, we thought that a fitting them would be …
The "Miscat Superhero" Contest!
Read on for more information!
APN: Categories and FeaturesGalleries month
Today we're taking a look at the Animals, Plants & Nature (APN) photography categories and what goes in there. It won't be as detailed as I've done some years ago. You can see the recap here. We'll look at the gallery descriptions today and some features!
The next categories are available when you submit to Photography > Animals, Plants & Nature;
Photographs of plants and animals living underwater.
Photographs where birds are the primary subject.
Photographs of animals that have been domesticated (tamed to live with humans), as either pets or livestock, and which depend on humans for survival.
Flowers, Trees & Plants
Photographs of plant life, such as trees, flowers, shrubs and herbs.
Photographs of fungi, such as yeast, molds, lichens, mushrooms and toadstools.
Community Week - Get InvolvedThe Community Week has been a way that allows Deviants to get involved within the community to educate other deviants with their knowledge and give out tips and tricks, and interview outstanding deviants.
Next Community Week
September 29th - October 5th
How can I get involved?
All you need to do is note projecteducate with your article idea! We can make sure to avoid double-posts in the Community Week and work with you on your idea when another deviant had the same idea. As soon as we are happy with the article idea, you will receive an invite to Contributors to have access to the journal skin, guidelines, and week schedule.
