Full MoonPale light brightens the beaten pathFull Moon6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Taken so many times in the past
Where one set of paws crush the leaves
Marking this land his territory, his home
Now the monthly run has come
Wolf is jumping out of the skin
A suit made of flesh and human bone
Wolf is ready to run on this full moon night
It always starts with a subtle itch
But leads to a burn, a passion of fire
Bright enough to melt and reshape
The bones and humanity of his form
Claws sprout from rounded fingernails
Ears stretch and perk straight up
As a long and profound muzzle appears
Slowly being covered in light brown fur
A groan of pain slips from his lupine formed maw
As his transformation makes its completion
Yellow amber eyes, a black leather nose
A bushy brown tail and hard padded paws
Again he was whole, wild, ready to be free
La nouvelle petite sireneIl était une fois, une petite sirène. Cette sirène nétait pas si différente dune jeune humaine, dans le sens où, comme toutes les jeunes filles de son âge, elle rêvait du grand amour.La nouvelle petite sirene6 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
Aussi, passait-elle de longues journées à imaginer à quoi il pouvait ressembler,
cette oisiveté favorisée par le peu dactivités quoffrait le bras de mer où elle vivait.
Un jour, un groupe damies vint la chercher afin de faire une incursion à la surface. Elle nhésita pas une seconde pour accepter. Cela serait sa première expédition dans le monde des humains ! Elle en était tout excitée. Il nétait en rien interdit aux sirènes de se rendre à la surface. Bien au contraire. Mais il y avait bien longtemps par ici que personne ny était allé. Même la surface ne présentait plus grand intérêt par ici ! Malgré tout,

I'd Rather Be Loving(7/28/2011)I'd Rather Be Loving3 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
If you had to choose, would you rather be good-looking or intelligent?
I thought about it for a moment, and my answer is this:
I'd rather be loving.
If someone was only admired for looking good, then what would that someone be without good-looks? Would that really make a person ugly? Looks fade, they are not forever. Can that someone be truly satisfied? After all, if good looks were all that people cared about, then that someone would not be truly cherished for anything else about them. Would anybody care about anything else about that someone if all they needed was good looks? Would there really be anything else left? If everyone was "good-looking", then it would have to meet everyone's standards. Yet we are so diverse and different from one-another, and not everyone will have the exact same standards. What then defines beauty? Beauty is a perception. What is left without "good looks"? What does

Death the victor?
Blood running red
Pain without an end
Evil corrupts the world.
Thorns pushed deep
Tears spilling over
Lamb so innocent
Slain without sin.
Forgivness for all
Light into the dark
Beauty for the broken
Redemptioin for the disgraced.
Blood paying the price
Pain nonexistent in his presence

I liked this and had friends other than the cows and pigs. I enjoyed this untill someone came...it was a new player and I expected to help them around and give them housing. the problem is they never spoke...and always were following me and watching me...I felt needed so I gave them shelter in my home but they never ate, nor did they mine, they just followed me. one day I finally convinced him to stay home and he did with a nod.

I really really want to share this. But since music are copyright protected, I won't share it up here on DA. I'll rather redirect to the original, and to the original Artist.
I know many people won't understand my language, especially those who are over seas. So, I sat down and typed out the translation as I silently sat and cried. I usually don't do HTML documents at all. This will be a first.
Reason why I want to share this, I honestly don't know. I'm not very religious, though many seem to think so. Well, I don't feel very religious. I usually don't like Gospel music, especially in my language, but I really like this song.
Also that the power has been out here for two days, and that there was no way to charge my phones, I sat and listened to this song, over and over and over again. With a song that Juanita du Plessis sing, which I'll share later.
But anyway, those who don't understand my language, can go and look at the video.
Now some won't under some of the events, so I'll tell yo

Okay since I went to look at your page and realized your a newb with no info for me to derive an opinion of you, I will have to assume your an ignorant child, 12-16 tops. So using this as my base assumption I will also asume you know jack shit about the history of your own country and just like to pick a good fight now and again. I can respect that and hope you are prepared.
First of all the Civil war had NOTHING to do with fighting to keep or free slaves. The whole "The civil war was fought to free the slaves" angle was the birth of modern spin doctoring. The war was about economics, the north had factories the south had raw materials. When the south got tired of being raped for its raw materials among other political issues they decided to secede, a move the north could not afford. The Imancipation proclimation looks good on paper but was only issued to bring the British and French in on the norths side before they officially recognized the CSA which would have meant the south could

Cause your not worth it
I'm not gonna wait for you
Cause you'll never come
I'm not gonna love you
Cause you don't love me
I'm not gonna go on playing your game
Cause its not worth it
I'm not gonna do anything for you anymore
I'm going to go out and be happy
Cause there's no reason not to be
I'm gonna go on without you
Someway, some how
You aren't my light anymore
You don't control me
I control myself
So I'm saying that one word
And you can't stop me
Leaving Myself BehindIm scaredLeaving Myself Behind6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Because Ive shared
My soul with this person for so long
And I dont want to leave myself behind.
I cant erase
I held in contemplation of myself
And I dont want to feel denied.
Because these thoughts are here for a reason;
To ignore them would be treason.
I am fighting this vacant season;
Looking for something just to please them.
[But I feel so very confined].
The world out there is a big fury,
And its ever-change and always in a hurry.
To survive is to worry,
With these thoughts I am told to bury.
[But I swear Im really not fine].
That I appear
Incapable to hold out for so long
But I doubt the problem is time.
So hard just to be proven wrong
Nude Art PetitionIt seems that DA suffers from an over-representation of female nude photography compared to other types of Nude Arts, and that male nude, especially, lacks the representation it deserves.Nude Art Petition9 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This
This petition proposes :
_To enlarge the nude photography category to a NUDE ART category.
_To split this nude art category into a FEMALE NUDE ART and a MALE NUDE ART categories, which would both have their own gallery director.
This would ensure a better representation of male nude and other sorts than photographic nudes in the Daily Deviations and on DA.
