She's brOKen by DestinyBlue She's brOKen by DestinyBlue

OK? Broken? Both?

Are we strong putting on a brave face or weak covering our problems?...

I saw her on the London Underground, she was crying quietly into her hand. Her vest top it read "YOLO" the new phrase, 'You Only Live Once' apparently. I noticed the top before I saw her sad. It made me think of how many slogans and things we wear that are a front, what if our t-shirt said what we really felt...
She inspired this... I handed her a tissue as I got off next stop.

If this is you; Thank You.

Update: well that went viral XD heh, mostly without my watermark on though >.>
I love people sharing my art, but please do give credit and a link back if you do! If you see this posted without credit/watrmark you can be awesome and help by commenting on it pointing people in the right direction. Thanks! :heart:

You do so much beautiful Art and tranform the sadness in handmade Crafts! Youre think youre broken? No, broken ones do nothing create...
I know that ;/

Honestly, in fact, for me, the only humans who aren't broken are the dead humans ...
When we see the spiritual and philosophical evolve of humanity and when we see how we live today in reality .... how can't be broken ?

Your art is fantastic !

To me it seems like the girl in the picture is hiding her problems and shows that she is ok. Behind her though it looks like she is mentally broken. I can relate because I have known what it’s like when you feel sad but you cover it up so you don’t hurt everyone around you.

*I just can't help but feel as if I'm looking in a mirror. Is that normal? I don't know anymore. I can barely wrap my mind around anything anymore. And now I'm wondering if I have a problem; sometimes I cry myself to sleep. I feel like I'm losing my grip on reality sometimes. And then I saw this and I gained just a little bit of a tighter grip on reality. So thanks Destiny. You're really helping me.  =)

Your art work really speaks to me. I suffer from a disease called Lupus that is in my nervous system and has caused multiple issues and made me very sick. Because of it I've suffered from depression among other things. It's a type of illness that doesn't really show on the outside. Basically My body is revolting from the inside out. Your work is beautiful and it really illustrates internal struggles. Thank you for doing what you do 💜💜💜💜

So weird this is yours and I just found your work on here and loved it because I'd googled something relating to saying I'm fine when I'm actually broken and I saw this and took a snapshot of it because I liked it so basically you're my new favorite

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!

Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.

Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a monday night at 12:00a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death.

Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if u copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes u will have the best day of ur life tomorrow. u will either get kissed or asked out, if u break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. in 53 mins someone will say i love you or im sorry

Your pictures are really beautiful.  I showed this one and others to my girlfriend.  She loved them.  They inspired a picture idea which she asked me to draw for her.  It's called "Secret Identity".  We thank you for the inspiration.

Broken? Did she lose her V card?
