We sit here.
silent sentinels of the sea
gazing at the cruelties
in that the sailors frolic
We were just like them
Till they took us away
into the depths so blue
And now so are we.
Why do they lash us
upon the rocks
strangled our throats
as we breathed the sky.
like fish on a line
till we were
like lifeless anchors.
Revelers in our misery
trapped like weeds
entwining a soulless wreck
no one visits
us in this prison
As lonely as the lighthouse

The opportunity to get advice on your artwork is critical towards an artist's growth and progress. Inherently, all artists are stuck in their own heads when they produce their artwork. No artist ever gets to a point where they no longer no feedback on their artwork. For this reason, it's impossible to see your work objectively, which is why it's so important to get a fresh set of eyes to look at your work and evaluate where it's going.
Even though I've logged over a decade as a professional artist, I still have to take initiative to seek out my artist friends and colleagues to critique my work. Frequently, they'll point out some aspect of the work that I hadn't even thought of, or was super obvious to them, but that I

LESSONS PT. 1I don’t want to be smart or wise here, I would just like to share what I learned.
From my childhood - I’ve always felt I was kind of different from the ones that were around me. Not really worse and definitely not better. Just different. I wrapped myself into this single thought, lived my life that was still somehow lonely and bleak…
They told me a person has two mirrors - one from the mother, one from the father. Both is important for different reasons. Those two mirrors are the basics of how you see yourself. Now, my mirror from my father hasn’t been in my hands since I was 4. Mom’s mirror is mostly there but it has tiny cracks in some places.
I told everyone how I hate myself, how ugly I think I am. Why? Because my mirrors are fucked up. I don’t care whose fault it is anymore, it’s just the way it is. If I look left I can see nothing but fog and dust and if I look right I only see a sad girl with the features of a monster trying to fi
