Depression is not an act. Eating disorders aren't phases.
Suicide isn't a coward's escape. Homosexuality isn't a disease.
Self-harming is not a cry for attention. Stop acting like you.
You know everything.The truth is, you don't know shit.

this is my first ink , i thought i should post it in some kind of
artistic way .It's a phoenix and the sakura petals rising up .
i guess everybody knows the meaning of a Phoenix and also
the meaning of the sakura in tattoos .
if you don't Google it up ! You won't regret .
pretty appropriated for our current earthquake/nuclear crisis situation.
Who would'a thought.

Eyes closed, out in the rain.
You never thought you'd be doing something like this,
you never saw yourself as, I don't know how you'd describe it...
Is like one of those people who like looking up at the
m o o n ,
who spend hours gazing at the
waves or the sunset or...
I guess you know the kind of people I'm talking about.
Maybe you
Anyway, you kind of like being like this,
fighting the cold,
feeling the water seep through your shirt and getting through your skin.
And the feel of the ground growing soft beneath your feet.
... And the smell ...
And the
sound of the rain hitting the leaves.
All the things they talked about in the books you haven't read.
This is you ...
.... who would have guessed it ?

You. ...."

It's unbeliveable how beautiful it is. I wish you a lot of hope, and a lot of fortune with the catastrophe. I saw a dokumentation about it. It really catched my heart.
Tank you for those feelings, you give me with your pictures ^^
