This has really touched me and inspired me. I love how you can take such simple words and turn it into such beautiful poetry. This really inspires me and touched my heart. How this makes me feel, is unbearable. It really makes me feel exactly this way. All I can think about as i'm reading this is letting him roar for the first time! Amazing. Keep it up.
i really can't sometimes! i try my best to reply to the majority of comments and messages, but sometimes i let them pile so high it's just not possible. and then i end up feeling terrible about it but i've been trying to keep on top of them recently, so i don't get too overwhelmed, haha
I've come upon a sad realization. I think I'm better, or more, than these thoughts of yours. That I'm done with these subjects and that I've learned all I can from them. It seems like my body wants me to move on, I suppose. I'm currently wishing that I was sorry for that, but only by a small amount.
Wow, that's some fucked up shit you just said at me. My "lion" is not a constant. Really, that does hurt. I just said something pretty damn personal and powerful for me and you come with this simple solution, but it's not for me. It's for you and everybody else that should be of a certain vein. I'm not gonna torment myself in such a way. I have thoughts, and, fuck you, people are gonna hear them, and if you want me to hope that they hate those thoughts, fuck you again.
I absolutely do not want you to stop sharing your thoughts. If I only wanted polite and smart people to open their mouths, I would never have replied to your comment. And please don't think that people hate your thoughts. Not all of them, anyway. Hate is such a strong word, geez. I've just noticed your frequent comments, and I thought that this one was particularly demeaning. So you think that you've reached a higher level of aesthetic knowledge? I hope you have. But don't use it to belittle oaklungs. Your tone just pissed me off, and I love to express my negative feelings as well.
I was angry and what I said was harsh, but I don't apologize for it. It was, actually, kind of horrible of me to be so vulgar. I was saying that the problem with me and how I responded to oaklungs' poetry was that I thought I was better, and that was not, in no way, a good thing. I can always benefit from people and their perspectives on things. I was being somewhat of an asshole, and you responded to me like somewhat of an asshole, and so forth. I'm sorry that this kind of encounter has occurred, but I must say that I find some of your comments to also be somewhat rude. Being blunt and straightforward with a person isn't necessarily a bad thing. You could blame me for not being able to understand who you are, in your entirety, as I could do the same to you. I think that we've mistaken each other's words, but maybe I'm wrong.
Indeed. Deep and complex yet so very simply put. You many have an inkling of your impact now but... Do you ever wonder how many people's buried yearnings, lost dreams and forgotten memories you stir with your words? I can tell you now, mine have been stirring for a while now and this only makes them swell to crush the rising breath from my lungs. Thank you for your words, no really, thank you. I need the reminder. I think we all do. Please carry on.
this comment has moved me, and that's all i can say. i wish i had more, but i just... i'm speechless. i still find it hard to believe that my words could have any effect whatsoever, and to hear this just blows me away
Heh. No problem. I know what you mean. Often times I don't want people to tell me the good that I do for fear it might change me, or the way I do things...or the reasons why. But here on dA i think it's needed where writers need more recognition and encouragement. It hard work to put forth the effort in all genres of the arts but for a dA browser it's easier to look at a picture than read words. I commend all of us writers here on dA who are still hanging in there despite the tendency for viewers (sometimes including the writers themselves) to pass up magnificent prose and poetry simply because they (and sometimes even fellow writers) don't want to read.
Also, I meant "You may have an inkling...' not 'You many have an inkling'. Sorry for the typo. Typos are trying to take over the world!
