A Love Only a Parent Could Give

As a child I was only raised for one thing.
Though none may not need it, I cease to vanish for it.
I gave birth to one of many soon to become,
You're precious to me, I swear, you're precious in every possible way.

As a child and parent, I hold my arms up
Always extending and growing up-
All the suffering and pain I go through,
All these scars were always for you.

As a child and parent, I hold my arms up higher,
I can try harder and harder, and I will never fall down.
I give you a reassuring smile,
I would never lie, I would never.

If only we were able to exist at that second.
We could have been together for a very long time.
I wonder why does that number continue to rise,
It continues to get in the way between us.
Why is it as I grow older, our bodies prevent us from being together?

As a parent, I could never play ever again.
It's normal like this, I understand.
Sometimes I have to hurt you and myself,
By scolding, reprimanding you.

As a child and parent, I can't.
I can't handle any more pressure from anything.
But I know I cannot give up,
I will always suffer for you.

If only we were able to exist at that second.
We could have been together for a very long time.
I wonder why does that number continue to rise,
It continues to get in the way between us.
Why is it as I grow older, our bodies prevent us from being together?

You were raised for one thing.
Though none may need it, we cease to vanish for it.
I gave birth to one of many soon to become,
You gave birth to one of many soon to become.

You're precious to me, I swear.
You're precious
In every possible way.

If only we were able to exist at that second.
We could have been together for a very long time.
I wonder why does that number continue to rise,
It continues to get in the way between us.

If only we were able to exist at that second.
We could have been together for a much longer time.
I wonder why does that number continue to rise,
When it's already time for me to leave you behind?


-

To understand song/lyric; picture the singer as the seed.
Seed that gives birth to the leaves. ((The child he/she takes care of and loves.))
Leaves goes through the same proccess and gives birth to the flower.
Flower goes through the same proccess and gives birth to the fruit. 

When the plant begins to die, it is due of age- it begins to wither- but the flower still continues to grow and live.
((When your parent dies due to old age, but you are still living.))

The stanza that always repeats is pleading for a time where the mother/father and child can be born at the same time so they are able to be together for a much longer time.


Last line is asking why the age continues to go older if it is already time to die.

:star:Note that the things that occur to this plant may not fit the actual scientific way they actually grow.
And interpretation and explanation may be wrong due to the actual growth process of the plant.

Plus I'm not a professional writer/poet. :iconmingplz:

My manga "Undone", written and drawn by me, edited by David Lee
You can turn the pages on the top or bottom right hand corner.
Thank you very much to =eindraa and ^rydi1689 for making this a DD <3

FOR THOSE WHO CAN'T SEE THE WRITING - I've written the words for each page, hopefully this makes it easier to understand I'm so sorry it's too small to read... (I'll try to upload a bigger version when I get the proper programs)
Undone
Page 1
I am high up on a hill, where orange and yellow flowers glisten
I am under a shadow of a tree, and here it carries the dark of me.

Beyond the dull edge a sea of city is seen.
It is all trash, cement, and anything unclean.

To others my presence is unknown.
Here in this dark, I have always been alone
There is so much silence, so much emptiness,
I've got nothing to gain, hope for, or atone.
Page 2
I've realized this darkness will not fade or fray,
Whether the sun goes here or there, this is where the dark will stay.
Page 3
Then... a girl came by
her hair was as bright as the buttercups of spring
Page 4
"What's wrong? Why are you here under dark and cold?
Your colours have nulled and your face is gloom...
On days like these, we should be flying and buzzing like bees"
Page 5
"I'm not a bee and I will not buzz,
my world is here under the shadows, and here I will stay"
She looked at me sadly, the shine in her eyes became thin
Page 6
She handed me a flower, a rose without its thorns
"Take this, it is a part of me. I will come back and take you out of the shadows,
and bring the happiness that you need"
Page 7
"I promise you"
Page 8
She left me with the rose, its cherry red petals were soft to my fingers - it made me happy...
I stood out to the light, the coldness of bark on my back dwindled.
Her promise engraved me.
Page 9
She came everyday, she held me out to the sun
We always talked, laughed, danced and always had fun.
But I didn't notice...
Page 10
The rose petals were rotting...
along with her presence, she didn't come day by day anymore, she came less and less...
Page 11
I told her the rose was rotting, but she said
"It will never die, I will still come here to be with you,
what I felt for you then, I still feel now,
the rose is still here, even if its petals are coming undone"
This I tried to believe... but the petals kept on falling...
Page 12
I threw the petal-less rose over the edge into the pit of rust and trash.
One more, she came by
Page 13
Her hair still as bright as the buttercups of spring
"What's wrong? Why are you under the tree again? I came to take you out of the shadow...
what have I done that made you remain in pain?"

"The rose is dead, like your presence to me.
you said it'll never die and that is what I tried to believe".
Page 14
"Your smile in my days became less,
the shadow of the tree became more stretched.
The remains of the rose is over the edge,
now leave me here where I am meant to be"
Page 15
"I found another rose but you only saw that one die,
out in the city is rust and cement, this hill has no roses and my promise had to be kept.
It took me days around this place to find...
But you never believed me, you never tried."
Page 16
(pretty sure that's readable :L...)





Done on PS and a variety of traditional media.

1. wait for a moment until the title is appear
2. right click everywhere on the picture. click play
3. use the "right and left" arrow buttons on your keyboard to change the page.

Obviously inspired by this drawing: [link]

...or is it the other way around? I don't even remember... Basically I have been working on this animation, on and off, for nearly a YEAR. So, finally, I decided to complete it.

The song is Tetris A from Super Smash Brother Brawl. It is so awesome my head exploded the first time I heard it. That's right. I'm dead now.


Quick edit from BEYOOOOND THE GRAAAAAAAAAAVE:

Added a replay button and fixed a sound goof.

Original Description

omg should I spaz out in a fangirl-type explosion?! haha I always wanted to do an animation like this and I finally forced myself to learn flash! Don't crit too harshly, seeing as this is my first flash animation and I screwed up too many times to count. I hope you still like it, though!

I've changed the actual title of the series because frankly the title "Original Character Tournament" is too general. There are many other OCTs on the internet and this is just another of them.

The new title is called, "Dareva's Last Will OCT" because that is the name of the OCT.


Drew "teaches" LyDia how to fight and then they travel to the world where the OCT is being held. [link]

This is the second part to the comic.

I must say, I had fun making this. Nothing makes making a Flash better than beating yourself up about it. :) Plus, randomness.

UPDATE
I added in the comic in the menu for convenience. It's a little stretched because each panel is wider than the movie. Also updated the credits a bit.
