I don’t think I’m coming back to deviant art—at least not to write poetry, not for a while.
There are a few reasons for this.
Firstly, my beliefs regarding a lot of social justice poetry that I’ve written have changed as I’ve gotten older. As a woman of color, the views I shared as a girl regarding racism and social justice have evolved, drastically.
I’d like to say that I’ve grown, and they’re not exactly the same as they were when I first started writing.
At the same time, I no longer believe that this platform is effective for poetry.
I don’t think deviantart is what it used to be. I won’t go into detail, but the website has changed. It’s become a task to submit my work, and an even harder task to get it out there.
I hope this explains my prolonged absence.
Thanks to everyone who followed me in the past, and I hope you understand! That said, feel free to enjoy my older writings.
As summer has approached, I officially have no job until next year! So I’m trying to make a steady paycheck writing poetry over the summer! All poetry will be five dollars, and I’m pretty much open to do anything. Check my gallery for examples!
May paypall is email@example.com! And you can also hmu in my notes so we can discuss what you’d want.

I call this the “calm before the storm”, because the next poem I have to write has to do with social justice, and that’s always a shit storm.
But to be fair, have you felt this way? Certain people I can swear I’ve met before, but not in this life. And I often wonder if the people we marry, and are happy with, are those we’ve met in the past? Who knows.
also thanks Nelyasun for the suggestion, reminded me to finish this!

I write poetry for a hobby and occasionally draw. Hope you like my gallery, though beware, there are strong opinions.
