This is a quick self-portrait, revealing that no matter how damaged, defective or scarred one may feel on the outside, underneath we are all human and we are all on this journey together. Why not try to love one another and why not try to love ourselves for who we are?
Under my skin I feel it crawl,
Out of the light I see it all,
into the dark you let me fall
and I’m away…
Beneath the shadow I am in,
Back to the place where I begin,
Down where the days are filled with sin,
I’m still OK
And the nights outlive the day,
Out where the demons come to prey,
Prey on the fact I’m still OK
just losing my way, yeah
Take me out of this living hell,
where you can’t hear me as I yell,
I find it hard to trust myself
when you’re away… But I’m still OK.
Yes, I’m still OK.
Recently I have decided to start drawing, something that I haven’t done since I was a kid. As a kid I never thought I was good enough at drawing or art, so I stopped even though I loved it. This is a quick watercolour I did of my best friend, Chloe, as a dragon. I tried to capture her loving, playful, inspiring yet strong spirit in this sketch.
