Very true, thought-provoking words. Nice to see a DD in a somewhat underappreciated category, and I believe your work deserved it every bit.

I love the minimalistic feel to the image composition, adds so much to the message..

Somehow you've managed to tap into my soul. I see this two ways, one way being that it is ooften too late to say things, and the other thing being that the words that come out are completely unintelligible, while the words written are illedgible.

Anyway, really nice =D

true.

for me at least. there are many words i could and should have said but wrote instead.

oh also the 1,000 men thing. on my gap year me and hte other gap folk were asked if we could end aids and poverty across the world but had to kill 1,000 people personally in order for it to happen would we?

many said no it was to higher price. well i;m sorry i make my own decisions so yes i'd kill the 1000 but i'd make myself the 1000th so i wouldn't have to live wiht the guilt but i'd die knowing things were going to get beter.

does that make scence?
any hoo getting side tracked lol

this here iscoolness. fact

Well, the concept on that saying means, I would kill many men, and put my own life at risk, to save one who is innocent of wrong.

Thank you for the comment and time you took out. Have an awesome weekend. :)

It hurts my brain to see so many people scratching their heads at this. :ohnoes:

Also: shouldn't it be "were the very words I failed to speak."? Everything is in past-tense, so it sounds a little weird with the "are".

Congrats on the DD.

Soyaku Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2009
I think it means, it's one thing to write something down and it's another to speak it from the bottom of your heart.

THat's what I took from this, though to each his own. I mean, it could hold a different theme for you if you elaborated.
