Here I will be,
Waiting for you,
When the time will come,
When our hearts finally meet.
In the past,
My heart had been broken,
Broken so many times,
That the pieces of glass, Were so small,
They couldn't be pieced together.
You did something that was
You gave me a new heart,
A heart without any bruises,
A heart without any bends,
You gave me a heart,
That is so brave,
It glows bright,
So bright, That I am no longer afraid,
Afraid of my fears from the past.
In the past,
I would have never thought that such a thing,
Would be possible,
But that is love,
Love is something that amazes us,
Its powers are so unparalleled,
That we can't even begin to understand,
What lies behind the word, Love.
It is so powerful it gives us something that escapes us, Bravery.
Here I will be,
Waiting for you,
Hoping to find the answer,
To what Love truly is.
The person I will love,
Look at me,
Our appearance may be different,
Our levels of Bravery are differ

"The one surefire way to get nothing is to not bother looking" - Joe McNally
Research carried out by Nikon has estimated that an amazing 332 million jubilee related photos will be taken on the day of the Thamas River Pageant on June 3rd. That's amazing. It even tops the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton last year. The upcoming Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth has sparked patriotism in the most unlikely places meaning that driving down a normal street turns into an epic photo opportunity with the various bunting, flags and other bits and pieces. So whether or not you're local to London and able to join in the four days of pomp and ceremony that the British are allegedly famed for - you might find that there are events and things local to you that will bring out the journalistic candid photographer that's screaming inside to get out! But in this day and age, when every second perso

A CALL TO ALL LIT GROUP OWNERS Profanity ahead? You betcha!A CALL TO ALL LIT GROUP OWNERS3 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
You owe it to your members and to the lit community at large to weed out/read the stories and poems you receive. You owe it to your members and the lit community at large to not be just another warehouse storage site for everyone's shitty work. How do you do this? I mean, that would be, like actually taking an active interest in your group. That's hard. I know you have Minecraft and Skyrim to play and every other stupid excuse in the world to not babysit your group -- it's so much easier to auto-accept every piece of scat that comes across your group's inbox! You don't have to do anything!
You are part of the problem why lit quality is so low.
You owe your members more than one asshole who thinks it's alright to submit his horrible fucking angst-ridden emo horseshit to 100+ groups (not an exaggeration). You've s
PE Feedback: Why some people don't want Critique?WHAT IS CRITIQUE?PE Feedback: Why some people don't want Critique?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before I go ahead and discuss this subject, we must first understand what a critique is - as a definition.
Critique is a method of disciplined, systematic analysis of a written or oral discourse. Critique is commonly understood as fault finding and negative judgement, but it can also involve merit recognition, and in the philosophical tradition it also means a methodical practice of doubt. Critique is an accepted format of written and oral debate. [Wikipedia]
Critique is basically another form of feedback; the main difference being that critique will underline and focus mainly on the bad parts of your work.
Why do people fear and avoid critique? This is a good question and it must be well understood.
A community of artists as big as deviantART is, involves a lot of creativity and hard work.
We all know how much work can last behind a photomanipulation. How much research, how many ideas ch

Current dA submissions guidelines define "Fantasy Photomanipulation" as photomanipulation that focuses on a fantasy theme. We have therefore set out to speak with our fantasy constituency and gain a better understanding of how they see and define the complexities of fantasy photomanipulation.
We all know of dragons, wizards, sorcerers, witches, griffins, magic, fairies, fauns, and all other mystical and magical beings. We learned of them through stories, art, movies, and games. The fantasy genre has become increasingly popular because of movies like Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter and games like "Dungeons & Dragons" and "World of Warcraft," not to forget fantasy wr
One epic Journey needs your helpI rarely write to promote others efforts in raising money for charity. It's because there are so many out there, that to promote each time I come across one would be ongoing forevermore. However there is one particular cause that I would like to direct your attentions to today.One epic Journey needs your help4 years ago in Personal More Like This
A friend from my college days is cycling unaided from Lands End to John o' Groats in June of this year. That's basically from the bottom of the UK, to the top. He's doing it for a very special charity based here in the UK called Naomi House. And why? Because in 2008 his newborn niece unfortunately died - but Naomi House were there to make her last few days as comfortable as possible. Naomi House provides respite to sick children with life limiting illnesses - and their families. It keeps a family together until the last possible moment.

Happy Birthday Moonbeam13!Hello allHappy Birthday Moonbeam13!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today marks a very special day for someone, and since this someone is our wonderful team leader, $Moonbeam13, we wanted to write a journal to say...
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DANIE!
Now a lot of you know Danie as the big chief of the Community Relations team, but I doubt half of you truly know how much of a hard worker Danie is. Not only does she have to look after us lively lot (and by “lot” have you seen how big the CV team is?!), but she works on copious behind the scenes projects on deviantART, making this place just a little bit more devious and better for all us Artists out there in the big dA community. Not only this, but she has to have a life at the same time!
Now we have decided to use Danie’s birthday for three things:
1. To wish her a very happy birthday (of course)

Literature Preview Images - What Can I Use?Hello, everyone!Literature Preview Images - What Can I Use?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Using a preview image for literature is something that can be a good creative addition to your piece.
However, there are some rules that go along with it.
What sort of things can I use for Preview images?
Preview images which were created using your own resources and your own efforts are most appropriate for use; you should not simply 'take' images which belong to other creative people without first getting their permission. Otherwise all preview images must abide by the deviantART terms of service as well as all other relevant policies.
Simply saving a random picture you found online without obtaining the artist or photographer's exact permission is against the rules of dA. More so than that, it is also unfair to the person who originally created the piece. Simply saying "I got this image from here" and providing a link.
If you didn't ask the person and they did not say yes, then please do not use the image. This could can put deviants in trouble as wel

Firstly combining the elements of many of the articles that have already been written in this series (see the bottom of this article for links) will assist anybody in gearing their photographs up to look more professional. However IsacGoulart summed it up quite neatly with this rather epic quote...
“Beauty can be seen in all things, seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photograph."

It makes me feel reassured that the pieces featured are community decisions, not just my own subjective thoughts and findings. There are millions of writings out there and I can’t see every single one. I rely on good spots of others in hope of continuing to share a variety of good quality and unique literature. Thank you to those who suggest and those who continue to make the time to share their findings.
I prefer 1 DD suggestion per note.

interview a deviant who is regular in the dAmn/Chatroom area of
deviantART, and ask them to share their initial and current opinions on
that area of the site. Since this is a new series I'd love some
suggestions from you about how it can be improved, and any other
questions you think should be asked. Thank you!
1. When did you start using dAmn compared to how long you've been on dA?
I've been on deviantART for a little more than 2 and a half years. I found dAmn about 9 months after I joined dA and first joined :#devart:. For the first 2 or 3 days I hung out there, or mainly observed there as I couldn't hold a conversation with anybody and started spamming with :iconstickmandancingplz: memes and broke a few rules... I was a naughty dAmn boy back then.
2. Which chatrooms do you usually hang out in? Any rooms you'd recommend do others?
