We walk alone
We hide our faces
We put on a smile
And go through each day as a shadow.

We are so busy making others happy
That we don't even try to cross our own abyss of challenge.

We can't balance on that wooden beam and so

We fall instead.

And we keep falling,
Unable to grasp our solid hold of the world

And we lose ourselves, relying on others

To catch us again.

Well I say forget that,
I will rely on you
But I will not be turned to scrap metal in the process.

I will continue across that beam
No matter what bullets you have to shoot me with.

And the day that I cross the abyss
Of people trying to drag me into its endless depths
Of sadness and self-ridicule

I will turn

And I will wave for you to follow,
Because I will give you a smile
And remind you that

It is worth the fight

It is worth the struggle to keep balance

But you must outstretch your arms
And walk with one foot in front of the other,

A straight line across the wooden beam
And as you cross
You will see the light on the other side as well

And those voices will grow distant
As you decide that

They are not worth your suffering

They are not worth the effort and strength
You put into each day,
Each step that will get you to where I am as well.

So keep your head up,

And just keep moving forward.
I had inspiration when I drew this, what can I say. -Shrug-

Anyways. The boy (Yes, that's a boy, don't let the girlish body fool you.) represents the person trying to cross the beam, and the shirt gets darker because of the wounds that the world is trying to give him. His left arm is turning to useless metal scraps because it took him a while to realize that he needed to save himself.

He's smiling because he's finally made it to the other side, which as you can see, it is in a way better than the side he had to start at. And also he's made it across the abyss, so that's the goal everyone should try to reach.

So, g'night, expect some cosplay photos soon as I'm having my Yuki come over tomorrow, and we're going to an Indian's game and then that night and the day after we'll be having an amateur cosplay photo-shoot.
I have quite a few things to use now xDD

I actually spent the entire day thinking of ways to write this and ended up just writing something on the spot because I forgot all of the ideas xDD

Yes x_x And I know that all of the ideas were really good, too, because I had been all excited, but then I got to the computer and remembered NONE of them.
