I am a labelI slid the blade across my wrist
Again and again.
Maybe I’m an emotional freak.
I cause fights and arguments
Maybe I’m a troublemaker.
I use make up to make myself seem
Maybe I’m girly.
I complain about things
Even when sometimes
Maybe I’m an attention seeker.
I fall under so many
So maybe I am a label.
I’m just me.

a type of last resort,
in the language of quips and retorts.
An opinion if I may,
if you formerly had anything brilliant to say,
it then dried up like the well from The Grudge,
don't be too harsh on yourself,
nor too quick to judge,
don't conclude you run on empty,
that's a trip to the cemetery.
There is plenty of material to choose from,
both here and before,
just know that reality for starters,
be assured of that to your core.
There is some reason,
which is neither here nor there,
that your imagination isn't taking you anywhere.
Just step away from the console,
go live life hard for a while,
guaranteed upon arrival back
you'll step in a pile.
Build your own empireAlmost anybody who uploads their artwork on an art site appreciates attention be it for fun or for more professional reasons.Build your own empire2 years ago in Other More Like This
Here I have compiled a small list of ways you can help yourself network through dA a.k.a building your own empire. This is just based upon my own experiences and witnessing other's doing. This is by no means a how-to on being that front page artist. You either have be be beyond elite and catering to the popular genres of art OR become a well known hack doing the same thing over and over again.
1. First things first, improve your artwork FOR YOURSELF!
Your first goal is to stop worrying about getting exposure. Oh the irony of that first step. You need to be your own artist discovering things for yourself on top of improving your techniques. Enjoy your process of artwork, you'll be surprised at how much better your end product looks versus a piece of work you did just to do it and get it uploaded on dA real fast. Do not compare yourself to other artists tha
