You held my hand through life and picked me up as I fell;
You were there to guide me with your words of wisdom.
And then you had to let go to give my hand away.
Somehow your voice faded into the distance.
The day came when you needed your hand held, unexpectedly.
Daddy, I don't want to remember...
Not the glimpse of you that made my knees buckle...
I could feel you letting go.
And then there was just the white noise where once your voice was.
Daddy, I wasn't ready... But I know... I know you had to go.
Even superheroes should hang up their capes.

My Definition
What defines me?

I walk through life with pointed fingers in my face,
 A giggle in my ear
As if I must hide myself with the shame of my existence.
Do you cringe at the oddity of my cat like eyes?
  Do you assume that my rounded form is from shoving fast-food into my mouth?
You stare at me as I work to rectify my weight, gawk like I broke the law...
You think that I never hear the snide remarks, too loud to be actual whispers...
  "That girl needs some soap and water," after I'd walked for miles,
      The least of my worries was failed deodorant as I slumped tiredly on the seat in the bus...
You call me slow or stupid for the stutter I have, or just call me ugly...
Do these things define me?
You throw judgments and shade my way, but never stop to ask me about matters of my life...
I am unimportant to you because my appearance makes me spam.
  But really, while I am aware of m

Profitterols (cream puffs)
Cream puffs with lemon cream and sliced strawberries for a blog/youtube collab. I couldn't not post these beauties.
Did a photo manip after over a year. Not sure how to feel about it, but it kept my mind busy. Birthday soon and not getting my call from dad to wish me happy birthday really bums me out.
My niece eating her first birthday smash cake.
For My Dad
I don't have a proper name for this piece... I really want a tattoo that not only honors my dad, but reflects a very vivid dream I had about him and the fact that he has moved on, so to speak.

I would have to spend an hour writing about the dream itself, so I will do that as a stand-alone piece at some point.

The dream catcher, of course, represents the dream, as well as some of my heritage. The skeleton key represents the secrets he kept that may or may noy be hidden somewhere in my mom's house, and the feathers represent angel wings or transport to heaven.
Unicorns are Real
This lady took me about 14 hours, which is the longest, mostly freehand piece I have done. Its hard to see the details as much in the picture since it is from my phone camera, but a lot of work went into them. Specifically the hair and the flowers. I had to redo the fairy three times, and the flowers are partially done using different pictures of flowers just to get an idea of how they looked, same with the shape of the butterfly. That is one part I am kind of not happy about bit I redid that six times or so and did my best to salvage.

Either way, I hope my niece will cherish this piece for a long time. Not going to lie, I poured my heart into her.

I barely, just barely started to ease after the suicide of my friend Sarah... And now I am thrown back into shock of losing someone.... My friend, Cora, has been shot and killed. She died this mirning in Toledo, it was on the news. There were allegations of cheating and domestic abuse from the husband, and he shot her in front of her 10 month old baby boy. Because of this coward, the workd lost another bright light, two babies have to see their mother buried just before Christmas, and a whole bunch of people are sitting here in shock, anger, sadness, and otherwise. I do not give a flying shit what she may or may not have done! She did not deserve to this way.
