LET ME SPEAK by DestinyBlue LET ME SPEAK by DestinyBlue

No one wants to listen to her... Without that she feels as if she has no voice at all.


Will you press play and hear her story?


....Okay so nothing does happen when you press play XD This is a conceptual drawing about peoples willingness to listen, and feeling muted when people don't want to do so. So good job if you did click, you would have made a girl happier :) The concept evolved from experiences of mine. If I could animate, when you pressed play, I'd make her take a deep breath, cast a relieved smile and say "thank you" Then she'd talk to you more if you were kind enough to listen.

Edit: Perhaps I made this a little too convincing, hehe ;) My apologies to anyone expecting an animation! Love reading your comments, I'm not trying to troll, honest, just drawing a piece of interactive conceptual art! XD Digital hugs for anyone who clicked :hug: Glad so many of you want to hear what she has to say ~:heart: I hope hope you can take the message to the real world and know how important just being their and listening to someone can be :nod:

42 minutes huh? That's something youcould dwell on, if not knowing much behind the piece. So much to be said looking at the length of this "video" ;) Makes me Wonder....

Hello! Would it be alright if I used some of your pieces (like this one) for a pamphlet I'm making about bullying? It's just a school project, and i'll be certain to credit you. :)

I'm not lying, I've begun to cry. This is so true, the people who need it most probably mask it too well. Because all company I have is my art, looking back up at me. If I could, I'd duplicate myself and I'd just let her tell me everything she wants to. She would need it more.
Great, now I have a drawing I can't draw. Two hooded mes, one smiling kindly, wiping away the other's tears and pushing her hood off. I'd love to see that.

It is said that great art makes you look at it and keep wondering, and keep looking... This is great art. I think my favourite aspect of your style is your use of colour, I find it quite amazing! Your mind must be so bright and electric!

People actually stop listening to me when I'm in the middle of my sentence, one girl even turned back around!  But it's really starting to hurt because sometimes even my friends do it to.  It's even worse because I'm in an international school where mostly everyone speaks english fluently but the majority of the student body also speaks spanish as their native language.  Last year I was the only one who didn't speak spanish fluently in my class and it was really hard because it effected how I worked in groups.  When I was in a pair it was fine but if there was more people they would just discuss the assignment in spanish and I couldn't understand them and they wouldn't give my opinion much thought over my contribution to the team.  Eventually I just stopped trying to help them and did the assignments on my own as the others worked together on theirs because I didn't feel like I was cheating off them, until they started copying off me without doing the work themselves because 'I'm smart' and I finished faster.  My teacher noticed this but even though she was from my country and should've understood what it was like to be the odd one out she sided with them and didn't give my opinion much though either.  she just thought it was because I wasn't good in teams.  But that wasn't it because she said so in conferences and my mother even noticed that was strange. She asked every one of my other teachers and they disagreed to.  Even my science teacher, who was her husband said I worked really well in teams.

Okay that's another ridiculously long comment.  Sorry about thatSweating a little... Just blowing off steam I guess, the struggle to get people to listen to you can really take it out of a girl,
Raven

I am sorry that happened to you. :/ Happened to me too. But not because I can't speak a language well……just because I was "the freak"

Don't apologize for relating to something. :) That is a great compliment for an artist when someone ties an emotion or experience to a piece of work from them.

Hey, the 'freaks' in school rule the world when they grow up.  And hey, at least you stand out, be proud.  Being normal is boring.  Also, when I move back to the states I'll probably be the weird girl from the country no one's heard of(Even though I'm an american)  Anyway hold your head high and (if you want, you don't have to if you don't want to.) if it happens to you again, you can tell them there's really no excuse for their behavior and what they are doing is, in fact, bullying.  Studies have shown that most bullying occurs when the bully isn't aware of the abuse they're inflicting (Mental, emotional, or physical) because it was "Just a joke".  Otherwise they are either 
A:  Insecure and trying to raise their own ego by making you feel like a freak
B:  Feel the same abuse at home and think that putting others down is the way to survive themselves.
There's probably more, but I don'y know of them.  But the most impotent part that got me through it was my friends, online or otherwise, you are never alone. 
I salute you, fellow outcastProud to Serve

Try 'Left Out' in bold with a dark background behind it it'll catch someone's attention but doesn't make it seem like those overly dramatic romance novels
