Literature
Visibility is Poor (TDOV 2016)
Sometimes, it can be hard to believe
in something you don't see.
Of course,
even the invisible exists.
It just remains hidden from plain sight.
For example,
Just because you don't see the pain that someone carries,
like it's the entire universe on their shoulders,
that doesn't mean that it isn't there.
You see, not all people are visible.
Some of us hide under false identities given to us
before we were ever able to reject them
Not because we want to
but because it is required of us
Some of us have erased our pasts
not because they aren't our own
but because they can be a danger to our present
Some of us have taken our own futures
not because they weren't promising
but because we are led to believe
that a future is a luxury that we don't deserve
And so we hide ourselves
because our entire lives
reality has told us,
"You don't exist"
But we do
We are here
However, visibility is poor
and those with vision fogged by ignorance
refuse to believe that which they cannot see
and the pain is am

Monster (TDOR 2015)
"Run! Run protect yourselves!
A monster came out today!
It's come to destroy our livelihoods!
To convert us to its ways!
It means to corrupt the children!
It feeds on innocence!
Its perverse and spies on women!
Quick! Construct for it a fence!
And now contained, don't you see?!
It cries deceitful tears!
Do not pity the beast I say!
Let its sobs fall on deaf ears
It deserves not your pity!
In fact, much worse it needs
For the sins it has committed
Retribution for its deeds!
Its sickening way of life
That it chose for itself
Has quite sufficiently earned it
A place on death's solemn shelf
So take it fast and bind it!
Let it not resist!
Fetch you your knives! And ready them
So that we may remove this cyst!"
But as the moment closes in
For the "beast's" untimely demise,
I look from my unassuming spot
And see true sorrow in her eyes...
She never was a monster
They just didn't understand
And now all her pleas are in vain
She cannot stay their hands
And as "justice" is nearly sentenced
On thi

    Today is TDOR and if you follow me at all, you most likely know that TDOR stands for the Transgender Day of Remembrance. I'm considerably passionate about this day as it is a day to remember the lives lost, directly or indirectly, as a result of the prejudice against transgender people. With the events of this year, transgender issues seem to be more widely known. However, this has not made life easier for us as there have apparently been as many as 217 prejudice related deaths in this single year. I myself was astonished and appalled by this news.

    As such, I felt the need to do something as I usually do this time of year. I will say that I have not done a comic or drawing as I have done for the past three years or so but, I have prepared a short poem that I will be posting shortly after writing this journal. I may try to make a comic representing the poem or just some other visual but I'm afraid I haven't prepared anything aside from the poem for today. While I would love to make an attempt at something larger for the occasion, I wouldn't want to release something sub-par just to have something out. Last year's project, for example, was rushed to completion on the day before TDOR and is not something I feel is adequate for such an important day. While it is still up for your reading, is not a work I am especially proud of.

    With that, I hope you enjoy the poem that I've prepared. In any case, please take this day to remember those who are no longer with us and try to stifle the pain of any trans person you know. Spend time together and remember to be strong so that we may make a better future for us all.

Hello everyone! There isn't much to say about me. I just write/draw/write&draw. You know, when I'm not being lazy that is... Anyway, my art isn't amazing but I hope that you will enjoy it regardless. And I suppose that's about it!
