Her hair was orange
and glowed in the fire
turning black and ash
not a single moment later
the scissors were cold

The embers were
glowing just the same
hungry for her tresses
the royal red burned
yet no burn was left

Her hair was short
uneven with amber roots
outgrowing the dye
showing her natural shade
mom and dad took the scissors away

Orange locks tickle her neck
fire cannot fight fire
mom and dad breathe easier
she does not touch the scissors
though she always looks

She is eighteen
leaving home is a blessing
her hair bundled in a hat
she does not like to see it
the brightness keeps her up at night

The hairdresser mourns her hair
more than she ever does
as it falls limply to the ground
the locks have lost their hue
she smiles as they fall

It is easier to tell people she is happy
now her hair is gone
orange roots don't show on a shaved head
she stands proudly now
she doesn't keep scissors anymore

Finally she looks in the mirror
and is happy with what she sees.

Originally I was at work, and this little girl with the most beautiful red hair came in. It looked though as though she got a bad haircut, because it was uneven and choppy. She kept tugging at it too, so I kept thinking about her, wondering if she hated her hair.

Sometimes, we really only need to change something about ourselves because it makes us happy, no matter what it is.

Hello my lovely friends and followers. I haven't been a very good deviant, leaving my groups unattended and basically ignoring this whole site.

Yet I miss you guys, and I miss the support. I miss the best place I had to publish my work, and actually getting feedback on it. I miss the contests and the groups and how you can find anything here.

Life update: I'm still working at the airport, and still writing every day. I completed NaNoWriMo for the third year in a row. Go me!

Tell me what I missed here guys! I can't promise that I'll be here every day, but at least I'll be here way more often than before.
don’t talk
just breathe
stand straight
smile brightly

don’t argue
don’t fight
don’t cry
don’t frown

do homework
go to parties
sneak out
get drunk

listen to friends
go with the flow
be silent
drink some more

don’t let them see the tears
as you cry yourself to sleep
for the most important thing
is to be popular
How to be Popular
Being popular is the most important thing.

A wonderful response poem: fav.me/d7wpapt

Well it's that time of year again, when SacAnime is coming up in just over a week. Unfortunately I won't be cosplaying this year, as I feel cosplaying has just become to strenuous for me. But every year I'm part of the staff, it's absolutely wonderful.

Oh, I'm so excited! The voice of Armin Alert from Attack on Titan is going to be there, including the voice of Squidward from Spongebob! Every year they get better and better guests. 

So if anyone is going, feel free to drop a comment. I would be more than happy to meet a couple people through Deviantart.

Nice to see that you did not get sucked into some sort of, inescapable perdition.

I did for a little bit, in the whole called "customer service", but I managed to claw my way out.
