She's brOKen by DestinyBlue She's brOKen by DestinyBlue

OK? Broken? Both?

Are we strong putting on a brave face or weak covering our problems?...

I saw her on the London Underground, she was crying quietly into her hand. Her vest top it read "YOLO" the new phrase, 'You Only Live Once' apparently. I noticed the top before I saw her sad. It made me think of how many slogans and things we wear that are a front, what if our t-shirt said what we really felt...
She inspired this... I handed her a tissue as I got off next stop.

If this is you; Thank You.

Update: I love that you guys love to share my art :) However recently a version of this drawing with the watermark edited out and without credit has been circulating the web. You can help by commenting/reblogging if you see it and adding credit and link back to my page. That would be much appreciated :D
I do love my artwork being shared, and am all for it, but you should always give credit like 'Art by DestinyBlue' with a link back to my gallery :heart:
Thanks to everyone who does share my art in the right way, much love to you :iconblueheartplz:
