In my mind there’s a boy who exists in chains Inside a cold dark room of painful solitude is where he will remain Behind these walls the sorrow is inevitable as relentless as the passage of time Mentalities corrupt and dark brainwashed and hopelessly blind Prisons are packed with crowded spaces lifers and guards with hollow faces Shackled hearts afraid of changes and weakened wills become complacent Yet I maintain with patience time can limit but not shatter my will strength blazed across my chest as solid as penitentiary steel But the silence speaks it tells me all I need to hear it confirms my beliefs and its promises I have to fear It reminds me that without freedom I’m alone And these whitewashed walls don’t make up for blackened souls I’ve given 95% of my boys a handshake than a pound before they were either locked down or buried off in cemetery grounds what I’ve done is who I am but who I am is what I do now I won’t let up or cease to fight Just time I plan on doing it right And what’s right lies within me I’m learning to appreciate my struggle for it would be hard to find the joy of accomplishment without it We live and we learn We rise and we fall Like the heartbeat of a sleeping giant with bittersweet dreams Stay up never down.....real talk!! #homemadepoem#fromtheheart#selfie#realtalk#mylife#mythoughts#mywords
Things may not be the way you want them to be now, when it comes to your relationship with people, where you are at, etc. Rather than feeling sunken, focus on your blessings. Focus on the good you have going on & stay hopeful about all the good ahead. Be grateful & don’t be brought down.
It's my mission this year to have as much FUN as I possibly can, and this lippy looks like a bit of fun doesn't it?! I've never been much of a fan of lipstick, but this range is so weightless and moisturising, it feels like your wearing nothing at all.
Who wants to be a Flamingo with me? 😂
Living with something people can’t see is beyond tiring. That no one seems to “understand” and get frustrated when their words don’t suppress your own feelings inside. I’ve been told I’ll never amount to anything I want because I can’t help others if I can’t help myself. I’ve had my arms been grabbed right from me only to tell me that my scars make me ugly. I’ve been told I’m too emotionally unstable to be around. And last but 100% not least I’ve been told to do everyone a favour and take my own life. — It’s exhausting to hear just be “positive”, or that it’s no big deal. I understand I’m not starving nor homeless, but I am suffering from something invisible to the eye. And if you don’t think I wouldn’t give the world to wake up tomorrow and feel like “myself” again, then your thoughts are just as black and white as the person your judging. I’m sorry if I can’t turn myself around as easy as others, my mind is disgustingly negative when it wants(and positive) . But I won’t be punished for it or continue to fake my happiness for others. I want to be me.. even though I may not know who that exactly is anymore, I have the “just” of what I need for myself❤️#girlswithbpd#blackandwhite#mentalhealth#mentalillness#struggling#stillhere#selfharm#selfharmscars#ptsd#depression#anxiety#fromtheheart#exhausted#betterintime#bpdproblems#borderlinepersonalitydisorder
it was fun while it lasted, i admit. but everyone knows forever is a long long time, and time changes lots of things. Losing a friend hurts anyone, everyone. Whoever, good memories still remain and i sometimes giggle when thinking about you, even smile. I wanted to stop seeing you, stop thinking about you, but it was useless because you were the only good memory from my past that i still hold so close to me, and I'm sorry i am not as fun, nor talkive.. some of the things i say may even hurt you just for trying so hard to be funny, to want you to laugh with me like old times. But sadly, the clouds will go but the sun won't come back, what I'm trying to say is.. I am tired of trying so hard to reach for something that isn't there any longer.
Atleast we told eachother hello, and I'll be honest, i never thought I'd read a greeting, as a goodbye. #vent#fromtheheart#itreallyis
✖️ STORYTIME - Where it all started✖️.. straight form the heart ❤️ I want to tell you the story about how I learned to draw and how much art means too me! It did not come overnight. It’s not just ‘talent’. It has always been, and will always be, a lifelong process.
When I was 5 years old, I decided to learn how to draw. An apprentice in my kindergarden was just waiting to start at ‘The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts’. He spellbounded all of us kids with his art - and me too. I asked him, how I could learn to draw like him, and he replyed: “Just sit down, right now, draw and NEVER stop!” So I did. It is almost 24 years ago. It gave me a hard time with the teachers in school, cause I ruined all books and furniture with my drawings.. (and I am so sorry about that!) Just 5 years ago I thought I was pretty good at this shit! 😂 (Just look at the first picture - those shadows though! Yeah, I never had anyone to spare with 😅) A cool kid from school, @chrishenriksen (maybe you know him and his mad skills?👌), taught me about smooth shadows and techniques I had never heard about - and thank God for that! 😂🙏 He has always been one of my greatest idols - and since then, I practice more and more! So thank you Chris!
People sometimes have a hard time understanding why I don’t party and always work. But you know what? It’s not work to me - it’s a lifestyle! My passion and my love. And the cool thing is that you can ALWAYS learn more and you can ALWAYS improve. 🙏
I do it for myself - I do it to motivate others and I do it so that I am always able to make you an unique design which comes straight from my heart!
So thank you all for your support, for trusting me and for letting me put my ink, my art and my love on you! 🙏❤️ And also a big thank to the greatest boss @hawaros for believing in me and for giving me this opportunity! And especially a thank to my amazing zenzei @cappellini_ink , who pushes me to the limit every single day and makes sure, that I always do my best and for just being such an amazing and inspirering artist. And not at least a huge thank to the whole team in Iron & Ink Copenhagen - you all amaze and inspires me every day!❤️🙏 Love Kris
Suivre mon coeur et mon intuition⠀
C’est mon motto depuis plusieurs années maintenant. Ça m'a aidé à suivre mon propre chemin pour sortir des sentiers battus, quand ça ne faisait pas de sens, quand ma tête me disait d’aller à l’opposé. Je me suis vouée à suivre mon coeur et mon intuition. C’est le nord de la boussole de ma vie. Je m’y fie aveuglément. Par contre, ce n’est pas toujours facile d’embarquer la tête dans tout ça.⠀
Je me rends compte. Il y a des fois dans la vie quand on est pas au top. Quand on arrive pas trop à entendre le coeur. Il se fait timide. Il se repose. Il ne pétille plus comme avant. Il est parti en vacances. On se sent perdu. La tête raconte plein de choses mais ça ne va pas. Lui ne sait pas trouver le chemin tout seul. ⠀
Et là, sans l’aide du coeur, on se raccroche aux petites choses. Même si ça ne fait pas sens. Même si ça sonne pas plus fort que des murmures. On s’y accroche. On fait ce qu’on peut pour avancer. ⠀
Ma boussole ne marche plus trop ces jours-ci depuis qu’Ayumi est parti. ⠀
On cherche à repousser le deuil. On cherche à lui dire : "Vas y c’est bon ça devrait être fini tout ça. J’ai pas que ça à faire que de pleurer mon chat. J’ai du pain sur la planche." Mais tant qu’on le vit pas il reste là coincer comme un voile jeté sur le coeur. ⠀
J’ai envie de faire des trucs avec mes mains, parce que j’ai pas envie de penser. Je me mets à faire des origamis pour faire un ciel d’oiseaux en papier. Pourquoi je ne sais pas. Je me mets à tricoter. Je m’affaire et je fais en sorte de me préparer pour accueillir mon nouveau chaton. ⠀
Le coeur a besoin de temps pour guérir. Ce n’est pas en le pressant en lui disant d’arrêter qu’il le fera. Ça ne fait que retarder le processus. ⠀
Mais bon je pense que la boussole marche mais d’une manière assez incompréhensible. Parce qu’au fond tout fait sens...⠀
