Paint your Wings by DestinyBlue Paint your Wings by DestinyBlue
Sometimes you have to find strength in yourself and the resolve to hold your head high despite pressure no one else can know. Sometimes you have to paint your own wings.

I like channeling things that happen in my life into my art. It's a very hard time for me at the moment. So I suppose this helped in some way... I've had to paint my own wings...

I hope you enjoy :)

Peace, love and washing paint off yourself,
~Blue x

T-thank you so much for the response on this. So many people who don't know me still showing their support... I hope everyone going through a tough time can find strength.

I remember seeing your art at least 2 years ago thinking "Wow, she's amazing." And I still think that. Your art is incredible and awe-inspiring, and this piece is no exception to that.

All I gotta say is... wow, you're amazing.

I'll paint my own wings, even if it's too painful to bare. I'll find a way to keep moving forward.

Hi, I have no idea if you're going to ever see this, but I wrote a poem based on this picture because it really inspired me. 

Lack of passion, lack of mind.

Lack of the love you left behind.

Limp thoughts and weary eyes,

Emotion is your demise.

 

Hide from love and hide from lust,

Crouch in flames because you must.

Fighting hatred with hatred to keep it at bay,

You've feared all feelings since they went away.

 

You can burn, you can bite

But you cry into the night

Bleeding as you wonder why

Your wings are gone, you're left to die.

 

Chair stands under the noose you hung,

Sick of being the bottom rung.

Realise the scene, push yourself up off the mat,

Back on your feet, you know you're stronger than that.

 

So armed with paint bucket and brush,

You try to work but not to rush.

As that band told you one song,

You'll have to paint your wings back on.
