a symbol of equality
a sign of a Matriarch system
the Ankh represents
the female at one end
and the male sign at the other
the cross bar between being the divider
the ancient peoples
of the rich Egyptian land
recognized the mother as the teacher
as the goddess of the family
where as the norm today
is the Patriarchal
where the father is the head
and the family his domain
but in the ancient time
often the way was different
even though the modern cultures
view the past through
their own rose colored eyes
disregarding the fact
that the ancients knew another way
yes the Ankh represents the equality
held upon its side it is obvious a symbol
of the female being the open end
and the male the straight rod
so often misunderstood
by the modern eyes of man
the Ankh will remain
as the age old symbol
of a lost and ancient culture
that was filled with real people
who lived a regular life
not unlike the common person does today
for every king or leader in any time

bringing it's warmth

the morning birds are singing
their song of the dawn
as the rays of light
begin to find the dew
that lingers upon the leaves
the light's reflection
from tree to tree
casting a colorful halo
all around this morning
mirroring the leaves light

laying upon the damp ground

enjoying the marvels

I AcceptI accept my own deathI Accept5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I know that it one day will be
my heart that has beat since my birth
will still and turn cold
my blood will stop and congeal into hardness
my breath will no longer enter my lungs
and the lungs will wilt like empty sacks
my body will die and cease to be
I accept this with the knowledge
of it's one day occuring
it is unstoppable
But yet I often feel
as if I have lived before
that I have experienced my own death
many times before
being different people then
with different thoughts and fears
loves now forgotten
pains gone into the abyss
joys now being payed for
Was it not I that stood there
shoulder to shoulder with the Gauls
looking down on Caesar and his legions
over the bodies of our women and children
knowing the futility of our actions
but hating the eventual end
and I can still feel the rush
as I ran through the dense forest
looking for a Roman to feed my axe
and then helping to pike the heads
of those that fell amid the trees of Teutoburg
and yet I feel the war

and think of you
through out the long day
I miss you when You are not near
I crave you so strongly
that I nearly tremble
your dark brownness
so silky soft and smooth
excites me internally
making my heart pump
the blood rushing
all through my veins
is growing stronger
as to you I near
I can smell you
before I can see you
your deep scent
wafting out to me
like the sweetest perfume
intoxicating me to follow
your smell through the room
pushing through the throng
uttering growls of irritation
until I am with you
and I reach out for you
taking you into my hand
I feel your heat
and it sooths me
I hold you against my chest
hugging your goodness
my thankfulness is aroused
I love you so very much
your color and your smell
the heat that you put off
as I prepare to take you
into my mouth to taste
oh yes so very wonderful
you are just as I thought
you couldn't be any better
I couldn't live with out you
you are my coffee
and with this poem
I sing to thee

storm coming in
riding along on the winds
the electricity is in the air
you can smell the rain
thunder rumbling across the land
evening sun hiding its face
everyone taking shelter
waiting for the worst to pass
but some heed the call
they feel the excitement in their soul
the storm brings a feeling
making their heart beat
and their pulse quicken
waiting for the power
letting the storm do its thing
while all the world
rattles and shakes to the intensity
their souls calming to the sound
their thoughts at peace
a hum upon their lips
as the storm rides away
on the clouds in the sky
leaving a dampness in its wake
and a feeling of freshness
both in the real and of the emotion
letting peace settle
for all the people in the path
of a storm so recent
the evening birds begin their call
telling each other that everything is alright
and the people of the storm
snuggle together letting their souls relax
soaking in the feeling
of the storm as it leaves
letting all fall back into place

Being annoyed about all those 'neko-ear', 'top model', 'school girl' and 'lolita dress' Naruto OCs, I decided to make a guide to help people to make their Naruto OCs more believable and Naruto-like. Before I begin, I'd like to note a few things.
* First, I don't speak English as my native tongue (I'm a Finn), so there may be some grammar flaws in the tutorial. If you note a flaw, you can mention it, and I won't get angry but happy. People learn from their mistakes, and so do I!
* Second, this tutorial deals with just the clothing of Naruto OCs, not about actual creation of an OC. There are heaps of tutorials about it, just go see them! Think of this as a deeper view to the Naruto clothing issue.
* Third, this tutorial is not made to flame those OC makers that create 'un-Naruto-like' characters. I'm just going to tell tricks to make your character more suitable for the series. It's up to you if you want to use them or not.

It's like self destruction,
Can't make the connection,
A small infatuation,
Invades me once again...
I might get over it,
But I can't tell you when
I'm full of a little,
A little too much sin
Feel me burn,
With the heat,
Of a thousand suns,
Because in my mind,
You are the only one,
That I want,
That I need
Without you my soul bleeds
Feel me burn
Take some time,
And you will learn what I see
Sit in my shoes for a while,
See what it means to be me...
The deadly consequences,
That I face,
Don't burn away the memories,
That time can't erase
I don't see what others see,
When they look at me
Hear me scream,
With the voice of memories gone
From this I gather,
The strength to go on,
All alone, alone
No-one hears me cry
I want you by my side,
But you don't see me,
You don't even know I'm alive
Feel me burn,
With the hatred of desire,
That you don't feel
See the changes,
And when you look at me,
It's your soul I'll steal
Watch me wounded,

Miles away Twilight, Rarity, and Apple Bloom clustered around the crystal radio in the Friend Ship's cabin, eyes wide in shock and horror as they listened to the live newscast from Canterlot. Static crackled through the brass bell of the speaker as the announcer's tinny voice could be heard. "... a scene of unimaginable chaos and destruction, as the stray fireworks have damaged the hull of the Ambrosia and have apparently punctured the gas envelope. The timely arrival of the Royal Air Cavalry means that rescue operations are underway, as our brave boys in bronze work to move the collapsing airship away from inhabited areas."

Clouds of steam from the engine mingled with the fine mist of a drizzly spring morning as passengers disembarked from the express train from Canterlot.
Among them, a lavender coated unicorn mare paused to savor the pervasive scent of apple blossoms that hung in the air, smiling up at the familiar hoof carved sign hanging over the station house proclaiming her destination: Ponyville. She cast an apologetic glance over her shoulder as the passenger behind her irritably cleared his throat, and hastily stepped down onto the hoof scuffed concrete of the platform.
When she'd moved a bit out of the way of the milling crowd of earth ponies and unicorns, she paused again to properly stow the book she'd been reading, which had been hovering at her side like a dutiful companion since she'd exited the train. She pulled an umbrella from her saddlebags and opened it over her head. There it floated in a cloud of sparkling purple magic, its shaft balanced like the poin

giving me dreams that hurt
making me relive past pains
waking me sometimes with your sharp bite
I feel you lurking there now

tired of the old game

and I can feel better things more strongly

filling me with the old despair
that no one can ever understand
unless they too have had a great loss
and felt the knife of betrayal
deep within their heart
but I will fight on with you

Rarity and Twilight's hushed but vivacious voices could be faintly heard coming from the parlor, spinning their tale of the development of the flight harness with the occasional question or outburst of soft, sandy voiced laughter from Rainbow Dash.
Meanwhile, the Apple sisters busied themselves washing up after dinner. The two mares worked in silence save for the clink of glasses and plates and the rattle of casserole pans under the gushing of the faucet and the soft rhythm of the scrub brush strapped to Applejack's hoof.
Presently, the freckled farm mare sent a sidelong glance to her younger sibling. "So... I couldn't help noticin' that y'all're more than a li'l bit taken with Pip."
Apple Bloom's cheeks went bright red and she avoided meeting her sister's gaze, becoming inordinately engaged in polishing the plate she held in her hooves. She let out a nervous laugh. "What... whatever'd give y'all that idea? He's just our test pony. Any interest in his parts... I

Rarity made an entrance in her usual style, a vision of fabulousity in white silks and sapphires that reflected the vista of blue waters and fluttering white sails on Horseshoe Bay that filled the panoramic windows of the Ambrosia's forward ballroom. The towers of Baltimare were visible out the starboard side, lit up by the bright morning sun that turned their windows to gleaming gold.
An elegant brunch was being served by pony chefs in spotless white caps and tunics off to one side, but the finely dressed passengers of the massive airship were crowding around a large blackboard mounted on an easel in the opposite corner.
Her curiousity piqued, Rarity plucked an apricot from one of the silver bowls, giving the attendant a warm smile and a bob of her glittering horn, before making her way across to the milling group with the fruit trailing in her wake like a phoenix chick behind its mother. The high class ponies stepped aside and gave her ple

Tonight, while the competitors, race officials, reporters, and VIP spectators arrived, Twilight was intent on doing the noticing, and recording her observations for her and Rarity's benefit.
Shortly after the delegation from Harmony Aeronautics had arrived at Maddie's, an exclusive club occupying most of the upper tier of Madison Mare Garden, the lavender unicorn had sent Apple Bloom and Pip off to mingle with the crowd, and took Spike with her to stake out one of the candlelit booths with a good view of the velvet roped main entrance.

The bells rang again, seemingly more insistently, drawing forth another moan, then a rustling of silk bed sheets as Rarity lurched half upright and shoved her sleep mask up off of one eye with a hoof. Her horn glimmered with a corona of blueish white magic, floating the gilded alarm clock off of the shelf to squint at the time. She let out a low growl as the bells jangled again.
With a huff of irritation she flopped out of bed, her violet mane tightly bound in curlers and a scowl on her face, and slumped across the room to the ornate phone set. Her magic flickered as she yanked the gold plated cone off of its receiver arm, wincing as it bounced off of her forehead and swung loose on its cord.

Greetings and salutations, friends!
I have of late found myself heaped with honors that I hope in my heart that I am worthy of, and one of these is the product of many long weeks of painstaking work that you now hold in your hooves.
It's difficult for me to express the gratitude I feel to my mentor and sovereign, Princess Celestia, and to my dear friend and co-sovereign, Princess Luna, for graciously allowing this account of their birth and early lives, as penned so many centuries ago by one of the very founders of our fair nation, to be translated to modern Equestrian and published for the edification of scholars and interested lay-ponies alike.

The clear, still northwestern air erupted with the sound of thunderous wing beats as the Pegathalon took to the sky over the limpid waters of Vanhoover Bay, striking east toward the tapering peaks of the Unicorn Mountain Range and climbing as the late morning sun reflected off of the racers' wings.
Twilight and Apple Bloom stood by a small camp table, watching their team disappear toward the eastern horizon along with their competitors. Presently, they turned their attention to the map of Equestria spread out before them. The lavender unicorn ran her hoof along the topographic mountain peaks. "We'll trail the pack through the mountains just in case the colts need any assistance, then cut east here at the southwest tip of Galloping Gorge and follow the railroad to Canterlot while they make their way through Cloudsdale, which should get us to the finish line at roughly the same time if we keep our turbines at cruise speed."
