Ode to Rise AgainstThe band spoke not to the masses,Ode to Rise Against2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
but to those whose wrists wore slashes.
Their words lacked a semblance of formality,
but were meant for those with abnormality.
The message was for all those whose pain was immense;
it told them it was time to rise, Rise Against.
Rise Against the injustice and pain.
Defend the memory of the slain.
Stand for those who are helpless.
Always try to be selfless.
Work hard for better futures.
Treat the world's wounds with sutures.
Rise Against their pseudo-perfection.
With music, they gave us direction.
Do not let yourself be tame.
Do not give in to their game.
Fight back, but not with violence,
and do not live in silence.
Rise Against the corrupt regime.
They are not as strong as they seem.
Live only by your moral laws.
Stand up, stand out, embrace your flaws.
Arm-in-arm, we make a wall.
Together, we can stand tall.
Rise Against the fanatic;
those whose beliefs are static.
They fear our success, our progress,
and so it is us they oppress.
In time, my suffer

Meanwhile Mr. Wuff whose name was actually Wolfieface and beyond that, actually Lowell, but we are ignoring that fact with run on sentence, did nothing. Primarily and specifically because he could not readily get up—which is likely why he had stayed there any length of time. That or he was just dumb, both entirely possible.

I am injured and lost. I've fallen to the earth. It is dusk and the sky shines on me in reds. My wings felt heavy. The snow white color glistening. My blond hair, short and my light blue eyes dull. I'm so tired. I managed to make it to a meadow out by a church. I fell to the ground and I felt a hand touch my shoulder.
"Are you okay!" A panicked voice asked. I moan and she helps me sit up. When I look up at her I am instantly captivated by her eyes. A green. But it shined radiantly and seemed to be ever changing colors. Looking like the sea, looking like gr

So let me reset the scene here. Me in the yard, minding my own business. Mr. Smith, in my yard, not minding his own business. Let me walk you through, just briefly here, what would have had to happen in order for Mr. Smith to be in my yard.
Mr. Smith would have needed to leap over yet another fence without alerting me. That should not have even been possible. Let me tell you though, this had very much happened and Mr. Smith was very much here.
“Uh! Mr. Smith! I uh, wow, funny meeting you here. What uh, what brings you here?”
“Oh. I see. Well. You know I think we just got off to the wrong start.” I began backing up as I spoke, trying to create a little distance between us. “You see, I think you’re great. I mean, I’m your biggest fan. I love— ”

Across the parking lot and back towards the forest that I had pranced through earlier I charged onward in an all-out sprint. I probably didn’t look like anything more than a bluish gray blur. Mr. Smith was chasing me and calling out to me. I couldn’t really understand what he was saying but I also didn’t want to.
I slipped on some of the needly leaves from a tree and went tumbling head over heels for some unknown length of time. Felt like an eternity. When I had finally stopped my helpless roll I caught sight of Mr. Smith—upside down. Or well, I was actually upside down, but whatever.
He had stopped at the edge of the Earthian parking lot. I guess Earthian Instructors couldn’t travel on the dirt like I could. Lucky break.
I didn’t want to take any chances of him following after me though so I broke out into a full on sprint clear back to Cedric’s yard. Everything on my journey back flew by in one giant smear. If I ran pa
AirplaneYou were once my airplane,Airplane5 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Jetting up so arcing high.
Painting the sky in streamers of pain,
Exhausted truths turned lie.
I used to wish upon your metal,
Tracing its dart in the clouds.
A vanishing fume petal,
Parting my hollow crowds.
A comet on my horizon,
Just beyond the glass.
Endlessly it flies on,
Rushing from my fingers to grass.
For this airplane wasn't omniscient,
Despite my worshipping heart.
It was barren shrapnel iridescent,
Lacking in living part.
It was just an airplane,
With no passengers inside.
Soaked with misty rain,
It plummeted through its ride.
I thought it needed love in its orbit
To finally look to pale little ground
And leave its flitting pit,
Landing safe and sound.
But wishful thinking had its laugh,
For that lost plane saw sights invisible.
Through the trance of propeller blade,
It chopped my searching soul in half.
And so I laid, cleaved and visible.
My wishing now forbade.
To trace the line between the stars
Where my hero ducked behind
Wondering if my soul

The lowering clouds lashed her down with rain, and a howling gales cut around her. She found herself arching her back forward painfully to control the black Honda throughout the heavy sheets of rain. It was a cold, bitter night, and no stars showed themselves to her. Rain drops rolled down her bare arms, neck and face.
Stunt driver. Closed Course. Do not try this at home.
Saiya-Nyde had seen all the commercials, and the warnings, and ignored each and every one of them.
Instead, she had taken her Honda to the Old Iowan grounds, and practiced: the cones, the wet roads, the three-sixties and the knievel-like jumps.
But she wasn't training anymore
Therefore, when she saw a long grey road before her which led to a road canopied thickly of dark-green and black trees in the darkness, she was completely unfazed. She heard the Police-Car racing behind her. She encountered a sharp turn around the corner, hoping to lose it that f

Getting the ‘cactus needles’ out was not a fun process. We had worked on the easier ones earlier; the ones in my paws and such. I wasn’t about to trust the Human to deal with the others though. No one touched my tail, and Hindquarters was a sensitive region.
“But they’ll get infected.” Cedric insisted again. “And sore. Then we’ll have to take you to a vet or wherever you take an alien cat and get you treated or something.”
“Not to mention you won’t be able to sit.”

He huffed and tried to grab one stuck in my tail fur anyway. I got out of the way and hissed.

I could only stand there and wait to see what would become of all this. Cedric was in the front yard—as he usually was. That’s where he parked his car you see. I had heard the car stop, then the door to said car shut. I assume it opened as well but I hadn’t heard that particular noise and don’t want to falsify this log.
Spork glanced at me briefly before making its way around the corner of the house and tromping over anything that really got in its way at all. Some people were nature lovers. Spork was not. In fact Spork was more of the mindset of wipe everything clean planet side and start over. That kind of thinking often didn’t go over very well with the inhabitants.
I scurried along behind Spork wordlessly. What was I gonna do to stop it from neutralizing the threat of Cedric? I mean sure Cedric was kind of a whiny individual and Earthian at that, but all things considered, he wasn’t a terrible guy. I kind of enjoyed his company

I was awake bright and early—I think noonish or so. I had already started the day out right by munching on a bowl of sugared flakes of Earthian meal and had every intention of going outside to frolic in the yard. The land serpent was out of commission after I had cut it open with the scissors the other day.
Oh yeah, some time had gone by since the previous log but nothing had been particularly noteworthy. In fact, despite how intense and life changing the events that day should have been, life had gone completely back to normal. Mr. Smith had never hunted me down; Cedric hadn’t even asked me more about my resources and knowing such coded military language. No, he had more important things to rant about apparently.
Things like telling me to clean up after myself. Wash the dishes. Use the lint brush on the chair if you’re going to insist on sitting on it. Wash your clothes every once in a while. Don’t stand on the table. Wash your paws, brush you

Death is only one step away
You are an artist and poet
You live in a world of dreams
Your imagination is incredibly powerful
You have written many excellent poems
And created wonderful pieces of dark gothic artwork
In your desire to create new themes
You have delved deeper into your mind
You are slowly losing control of your sanity
Madness may take over at any moment
To achieve greatness you have to take risks
And dwell in the dark recesses of your mind
Will you take the final step?
If you make a mistake you will be doomed
Insanity will be your companion
You will drown in your own dark thoughts
And death will soon follow
On your tomb will be engraved the following message:
"She died for her art"

And rejected by you

No more your adorer
I'll break through the chains
That tie me to you
I'll make you not matter…

But then everything
Reminds me of you
My temptations grow larger
And I find myself drawn
Back to the torture

“Kitty? Here kitty, kitty.”
My ears perked up but I was still face down on the pillow in my favorite cardboard box.
“Kitty.” I heard again.
I grumbled and pushed myself up partially. Cedric hadn’t quite picked up on the fact I wasn’t exactly the same as their Earth cats. Oh well, another day.
I crawled out of my bed. Command Center and such didn’t seem fully coherent yet so I had to rely on my own knowledge. I navigated through the door and blinked a few times to get my Visual Scanners working—eyes that is. Or well that is the closest thing I can relate my high tech properties to. A doctor would call them the same exact thing but how boring is that?

A few days ago, I started seeing journals once again ranting about how SOPA is going to take away our fandom, or even our original content, in my feed here on deviantART. I did a search for reputable sources talking about it, and found just enough to be worth discussing, but not enough to justify the panic that's happened. I vowed I would do a journal about it come the weekend.
Since then, it's blown up. I've had numerous new faves on my old write-up of SOPA 201, despite it having "2013" in the title. I wish I could be happy as well as flattered, but the piece of potential legislation I wrote about then isn't the one people are talking about now. People have been calling for me to explain the "New" SOPA, but research to cite has been scant and so has my time. I have many more obligations now than I did then, and I wrote the last article at a much less busy time
