So, yeah, back where I started. Been busy with college, pursuing a career I'll know I'll make money off of, while fellow Deviants sit back and post their uninspiring, unoriginal, cry-baby poetry and literature and expect a movie off it or expect people to consider that person 'complex, eccentric and original'. Well, slight rant in coming, by the way, just scroll down until you see the ---, won't be long!
Well, for your little information, your shit that you post on Deviant Art and expect people to question about you and love to see more work about you is all false. If you weren't blind to compliments and notice that they're just being nice OR they're 14-15 years old themselves, I think it's time for you to just get off Deviant Art. Posting shit like
"I am sorrow
Misery and anguish
I love the rain
For it resembles me"
is not art. It's something a child writes after discovering Nightmare Before Christmas or My Chemical Romance. I know because I was one of that, years ago, when I was 14. I'm embarrass of my work, of all my work with the exceptions of a few, but almost all my younger-self work, I hate looking back on it. I had no goddamn reason to be all sorrowful and miserable. I was just a young kid trying to find a craft for my art work, and I did! I honestly did! Without the aid of 'art schools' and 'poetry get-together's' no! I wrote every week, something new until I realized that listening to Linkin Park and Avenged Sevenfold, which are bands I *severely hate* nowadays, didn't help me perfect the craft of poetry. It made me a fool and regret going through my 'Emo' phase. I grew the fuck up, wrote 'The Prodigious Sanctum' which is the ONLY work I still like now as an adult when I wrote that as a teen, and realized Emo depressing shit is boring and uninspiring.
Yet, Deviant Art -STILL- likes to promote this. Why? I thought after nearly a decade, this 'emo' shit would have died down since everyone else in the world ruined it, I.E Blood on the Dance Floor, Hot Topic, and Scene kids. Why is "I hate my life and I want to die but I can't because I still love her" popular but not "It whispers to me in a hymn so vague that it shatters my conception and creates a new reality" type shit not? Does no one want to think on Deviant Art? I know Deviant Art is 95% fandom shit, 4% original art and 1% trollers, but the 4% should be more advertised that this Avenged Sevenfold shit.
Just blows my mind how 27 years old adults are still posting the same crap they probably posted when they were 16.
Right, anyway. This is actually my departure from this account. Steampunk-PoetV is being shut down due to well, in activeness and for the sake of my well being in not -EVER- seeing my old shit again. I will create a new account but will not give you the details because, I want everything new, including new poetry followers. I highly doubt anyone would care and for those who already watch me on my other account, I'm not departing from Deviant art, just this account to start a new one.
Thank you, sorry for the rant, and stay true~
