Take Me to ShriftMy soul as black as the nightTake Me to Shrift by StrongButGentle
With few white spots left
Dark liquid seeps onto my hands,
Staining them, biting, stinging, bleeding
Eating away at me like hungry leeches
No tears that fall from my eyes
Can wash away all this corruption
Filthy blackened sinner
When will I ever feel clean?
When will I ever return to white?
To feel clothed in purity,
To be bathed in holy light
Perfectly clean and clear,
For just those first few moments
All of my wrongs built up inside,
Layers of blackness heaped on me
So thickly as if by a paintbrush
And piled on as heavily as bricks
Over the days, over the years
It will only grow and grow
Like moss, mold, dirt, grime
It will only hurt and hurt
So what's the point?
Please don't let me drink the poison
Don't let all of this weight crush me
Save me from this burden
From this condemnation that is my own
Demand of me whatever you will
I'll do it, if only to protect my life
If only to shield myself from the dark

I'm a dreamer and an artist just like all of you . . .|
I have been drawing since I was six years old. I didn't think much of my drawings, but my classmates were stunned by them. I drew a pair of pink Converse sneakers when I was nine years old, and my mom was so amazed she got me to sign it and made copies of it to everyone she knew. Then she consigned me to a ton of art courses in drawing, painting, and a little of ceramics.
Art is a natural talent and a gift. Sports have different seasons, school ends eventually, but art stays with you forever.
To me, music and art are the most beautiful and compelling forms of self-expression and catharsis. Art is the breath of life in me; it is my passion, my joy, and my sanctuary. I draw and write whenever I feel the pull - I have much more time in the summer, but despite school, workload, and stress, I draw and write in between.
I mostly do photography, anime art, fan art, realistic drawings, and literature. I have over 400 art pieces, I am the founder of Ran-maoFC and I update my journal entry every few days to weekly
