'What People Mistake For Naivete'
So on the side, I also write poetry and sometimes perform it spoken word. I showed this one to my grandmother and she said that I should share it on my sites, so ah, well heres a thing! I hope you enjoy it :)
Walking on eggshells
Sure is an uncomfortable feeling
Childhood like spilled yolk, messy and runny
Perils of life poking and prodding at sensitive skin
Threatening to penetrate the barrier you thought you built strong
When you said you’d “put your foot down”
Truth of the matter is, that layer is insubstantial
Anything can get through it, and everything will
You’ll fall ill for periods of time and call it a cold or a fever
Cough up a lung or two in front of friends or on the streets
Before realizing the medicine lies in the tight bonds
Between you and the invisible
No doctor will tell you this
You will go through all the motions of life
Cold winds in January
Heartache in February
Fresh air you can’t enjoy in the spring
Dead trees in the fall
A separated family at the dinner table
Repeat the cycle
Needing to increase your blanket count
Shedding two-hundred strands of hair per day, sometimes more
Reminding yourself that sunrises in the mornings are worth waking up for
That grey clouds bring storms that aren’t always gloomy and damaging
That you have a choice
Your choices become more important with every passing day
Cherishing the little things that help the flowers grow around you
And within you, helps
Slowly, you’ll start to see differently
Snowflakes in January
Heart-warmed by February
Daffodils and begonias in the spring, making wishes on dandelions
The array of colors in fallen leaves, a prelude to new life
Everyone’s crying at thanksgiving because they all hurt
But they do so with smiles and hugs
Repeat the cycle
Twenty years old and your whole life ahead of you
You’ll realize that you cannot rely on sight anymore
So you’ll walk on faith instead
If anything ever gets under your skin, it won’t hurt as much
Because you’ve grown that much stronger
And suddenly you’re walking on smooth pavement
Won’t be long until you sprout wings and taste another sweet freedom.

Hey Kenya! I'm in love with your drawing of Toothless, Cloudjumper, and Stormfly! Is there any way or anywhere I could buy it as a print from you?
Hi darling! Thank you! <3 Gee, maybe I should make this thing a print, huh?
#poll of sorts
Welovefine is havinga Dragons 2 contest and they sent me an email notification about wanting to re-enter work.
Question to all my awesome lovely followers who like my Dragons art, if I decide to enter, what exact HTTYD 2 material would you like to see on a shirt?
The paper parrot you made was beautiful! How much would it cost to get a paper cockatiel from you? If you want to make one, that is. I would love one.
Hiya! Why thank you love <3 What I usually do is for small birds upto passerine bird size I charge 120$. For parrot and medium sized birds I charge 165$ and for birds crow sized and larger that can range from 200$- up.
A cockatiel sounds super fun! :D i’d love to do one if you want me to!
This includes shipping costs. Also as a side note to the other kind person who asked, I gave you only the creation rates, these are the prices with shipping! :)
