SkyfallI don't want to try to flySkyfall by RoguetheScarredAngel
For the fear of falling.
I don't want to swim
For the fear of drowning.
And I don't want to say a word
For the fear of being heard.
I just want to know who I am
And what I was meant to be.
But that would mean facing my fears
And I'm not sure I'm ready for that.
I don't want to trust
For the fear of being hurt.
I don't want to chase my dreams
For the fear of failing.
And I don't want to fall in love
Because hitting the ground would hurt.
And I'm too young to know these things
And what it would feel like.
I'm too young to know what it means
To finally hit the last strike.
I know what it feels like to fall
Because I've tried to fly
I know what it means to drown
Because I tried to swim
And I know what it's like
To try to speak, to yell, to scream
And never be heard.
So tell me, reader
Do you know what it feels like
To be ignored when you're screaming?
So tell me, author
Do you know what it feels like
To write a piece of your heart out?
Save the Rain Forest!
Follow me on

The Heartbeat of Modern Music
From the days of Beethoven and Franz Liszt, to the Vaudeville stages of America in the1880s to the 1930s, to the electronic keyboards anchoring the rhythms of today’s rock groups and pop singers, the piano has been the heart of the music animating our popular entertainments. Not as sexy as the guitar, nor as brash as the drums, the pianos have been the steadying source of rhythm and timing holding together songs and other compositions for the past several centuries. And, oh yes, while not being so overtly sexy, pianos can be very romantic. Enjoy this gallery of the musician’s most basic dream machi

What must any of us do before we can understand what we read in the Book of Life? When is one ready to write upon its pages his or her own contributions?
Life is no passive gathering of information. It is not a spectator sport. Only in participation is one truly alive. In order to express feelings or opinions about anything in life, one must have a personal experience of it. Only personal experience conveys the qualification and the right to speak, to write or to create art as explanation and explication of any topic of discussion and debate.

I am haunted in this holiday season by the opening lines of Charles Dickens’s A Tale of Two Cities, his novel about a society 250 years ago coming apart in its seemingly irreconcilable divisions. Could it be these lines define where we have come to find ourselves today?
“It was the best of times,
it was the worst of times,
in the age of wisdom,
it was the age of foolishness,
it was the epoch of belief,
it was the epoch of incredulity,
it was the season of Light,
it was the season of Darkness,
it was the spring of hope,
it was th

Many of you have been in this community for a long time, but whether you’ve just joined or you’ve been a member since day one, this is your first impression of the new DeviantArt.
Change is not something that we take lightly, because it affects our collective identity. It was important for us to define who we are and what we’re made of at our core before we changed anything. We all have our own understanding of what that means, but the process of getting that core story down on paper took almost a year.
The result is “Bleed and Breed Art.” This is our center of gravity and our reason for getting out of bed in the morning.
It is the guide and the justification for everything, including our business partnerships, the development of the new app and the design of our new ide
