Happy 16th, Deviantart! by Rahdiyan Happy 16th, Deviantart! :iconrahdiyan:Rahdiyan 0 0
Beyond the Horizon
Clouds radiated across the sky in sweeping arcs, crystalline white against luminescent azure. As far as the eye could see, just sky and land—a flat, gray-brown expanse, the horizon so unbroken by trees or structures that the wind galed almost constantly across it. He had never seen a place so empty and unmoved. If not for the wind and the clouds shifting over head, he may have believed the world had stopped, frozen in a breath of time.
His older companion smiled down at him, a hint of mischief in silver-green eyes.
“You seem surprised; surely, you did not believe the mountains went on forever?”
He shook his head.
“I knew the mountains end; I’ve seen the ocean, and walked through forests and rolling hills. But this…?”
He shook his head again. He had no words for how it made him feel.
“There is much to the world that you have yet to experience or learn about,” his companion informed him.
Those eyes, ageless with wisdom, gazed across t

Sitting on the bottom looking up.
I struggled as I sank, limbs thrashing, hands slapping the water while I tried, desperate, to keep my head over the surface. It didn't look so much to everyone else, but the panic was real, too real to cry out for help. I'm drowning; I don't have air to waste screaming. They just keep swimming over head, oblivious.
So here I am, so far down you won't see me unless you're looking in the right spot. Don't expect a wave or a smile. I'm too tired for that. I can't reach up for a hand extended downwards, but don't mistake it for giving up. I'm not ready to accept defeat.
Still holding my breath despite the pain.

Why Do I Take These Quests
Oh give me a home
Where no Druffalo roam
'Cause they're slow and they smell really bad
And if there's one more word
About guiding the herd
I'll stab you and burn down your home
Why do I take these quests?
They're always tedious at best
I don't need your sword
And if I wasn't bored
You can bet that you would be ignored

Pain is Easy
Pain is easy.
You know where it is, where it comes from. A sliver in your finger. Stubbed toe. Broken arm. Heartburn. There’s more than one kind. Sadness. Guilt. Grief. But there’s still a reason, and regardless of how and how long, you know why.
Depression is ‘pain’. Not physically. It’s like a hole that can’t be filled. Everything could be perfect for you, but you can’t shake it. It can’t be torn out, or cut off, because it’s a hole. Holes are empty. Depression is empty, and it’s heavy. A burden you want to run from. Surround yourself with the good things. Try to forget. The hole doesn’t vanish, but some things can help to prop it up so the emptiness doesn’t bury you.
Anxiety is not pain.
It doesn’t have a reason. It can’t be poked and measured anymore than depression can. You can’t tell where it is. You don’t know what it is. You try. You try so hard. Everything is exploding, in an

We Live
Let us pause a moment, and ponder. For a few minutes, forget the tree, the presents, the same old songs.
This isn’t a time of parcels and packages. Not a time of things. No single thing could compare to the message of hope and peace already left to us.
It doesn’t matter if you believe in the babe in the manger. It doesn’t matter if you believe he is the son of God. It doesn’t matter even if you believe the story of Christ to be any more than that—a story. Real or not, that’s your choice. But the lessons to be learned are more than who he is. The story, the tale, the hope, is not what he is, but what he did.
He wasn’t rich. He must have lacked many of the comforts afforded to others. He wasn’t one of the ‘popular’ group—he was, in fact, hated by those in power. But his own lowly station didn’t stop him from showing love. Compassion. Understanding. He saw others in need and gave them everything he could

Stranger in a Crowd
Frozen in place.
Soundless in the silence.
No heart to beat,
no breath to quicken.
Music wakes not sleeping ears;
fragrance forsakes lost smell;
and all the world goes on in glory,
careless as they pass me by.

are you taking photoshop classes, or what?
Rahdiyan Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2009  Student General Artist
Technically, I've taken three. We covered the CS2 version in my 11th grade photography class, and then I've taken two art classes UVU that went over CS3 as well. The rest I just worked out through experience.
