'The Warrior is a Child...' by 6SeaCat9 'The Warrior is a Child...' by 6SeaCat9
Lately I've been winning battles left and right
But even winners can get wounded in the fight
People say that I'm amazing
Strong beyond my years
But they don't see inside of me
I'm hiding all the tears

They don't know that I go running home when I fall down
They don't know who picks me up when no one is around
I drop my sword and cry for just a while
'Cause deep inside this armor
The warrior is a child

Unafraid because His armor is the best
But even soldiers need a quiet place to rest
People say that I'm amazing
Never face retreat
But they don't see the enemies
That lay me at His feet

They don't know that I go running home when I fall down
They don't know who picks me up when no one is around
I drop my sword and cry for just a while
'Cause deep inside this armor
The warrior is a child

They don't know that I go running home when I fall down
They don't know who picks me up when no one is around
I drop my sword and look up for a smile
'Cause deep inside this armor
Deep inside this armor
Deep inside this armor
The warrior is a child

Once I heard this song, I HAD to draw this picture... It just seems to describe Sonic, because even the tough guys in the world need to just sit down and cry every once in awhile. It makes them human...

This song always makes me think of Sonic, having an off day, just needing to be alone and cry a bit... of course, after doing this for maybe ten minutes, he gets up, wipes the tears away, smiles, and goes back to being his old self.

We ALL need to cry sometimes... it makes us human.

I have to admit, this song does fit Sonic extremely well. And truth is ALL of his friends were originally forced to grow up before their time with Robotniks sudden and immediate takeover. Although you are also right that straight after letting his armor down for a few minutes, he would stand up again, give that carefree smirk of his and be off in the wind again.

Yup! That's our Sonic!!!

At first I thought I was the first person to draw Sonic crying, but then I saw that he cried in an episode of Sonic X, the Sonic comics, and even once in AOSTH.

Yeah, I've seen him cry before... and just like you mentioned, he would show his softer and fragile side for a moment before smiling. It seems to be something he's adept at. That and running into the sunset. XD

He's not Emo! We all have off days, so this is my way of saying, hey, heroes can have them too!
