I may have to report you on the violiation of using another's work as your cover.
You write good poems , but make sure you use your own artwork in the future if you can't get the permission to use other's work as your cover.

Well , common excuse.

"Others does it , so why can't I"

Perhaps one day when one of your work's being used without your permission , you'll know the feeling.

Just change the cover soon if you can't get the permission from the original artist.

If not , I may have to file a report.

This is a friendly warning now. Since I can see you just joined deviantart lately.

I've definitely seen this on Pivix.
Please make sure you have asked for the artist's permission to use it as a cover.
If not , this can be consider some what as art stealing.

My apologies if I sound harsh , but apparently I've seen a lot using all these artworks without asking the permission from the creator as they like , and I'm really tired of people like those.

Then he/she is wrong too. Doesn't means someone else does it and you too think it'll be ok.
Try considering some copyright respect for other's works.
I know there are tons of people doing stuffs like these , but it's always best that you do the right thing.
I'm sure you won't like your work being used without getting any credits now will you?

This particular piece kind of caught my attention cause I remembered adding it to my bookmarks in pivix.
I was surprise to see this as I thought the artist's has an Deviantart account too. But I found out otherwise.

In short ,I respect the good artists in Pivix and I do not wish to see their works being used without their knowledge/permission.

Hi there , may I ask if you have gotten the permission to use the work as the cover to your poem? It definitely belongs to one of the top daily rankings of an artist in Pivix.

Please make sure you get their permission and credit them for it.

I don't look at the front page much. XD But we're learning about referencing and copy right in Illustration, and one thing we're always told is to reference work that isn't ours. It's a pain, but it's only fair.

everyone is always changing the whole life, so there is no real "you" except you accept for yourself that all this "changing" is about who and how you are.
Decisions are also who you are and what makes you and deciding on what you remember when you loved someone...is also what makes you....don't be sad about loves you lost, be happy about the time you had with them, that they are part of your life and yourself now ;) and don't let life play with you either....play with life, because it's like a child, it will respond to every action you do or not do...

These sentences truely fit into my situation and my feelings right now. :( I know my true self, but sometimes I wonder what happens to it and where it's taking me and love has such a deep impact on it. It can change your personality, destroy your dreams and let you walk through a valley of a huge amount of different feelings at the same time. But somehow bad moments in life and in love seem to stay longer than the good and beautiful sides of life.
And I also hate my life sometimes. A lot.

You're not alone and I hope you will feel better soon enough!

And I have to say that these few words were very beautiful as well as the picture! :love:

You are an individual. I know that answer isn't simply the answer. And I can not answer this question. Only yourself can. I'm struggeling with this question many times (probably as you do) and there were many moments when I also thought about my purpose of my existence (bc sometimes people convey me the feeling that I am nothing -nothing to care or think about). And this problem is still present.
To answer the question who you really are: I try to live as the person I want to be - with my thinking of moral concepts and my conscience. Try to be yourself and feel comfortable of who you are and don't let anyone tell you,that you can't do sth or change you into someone that you are not and don't fell connected to.
I think the question also implicates the question "Whats the meaning of my OWN life?"
There is always someone who will love you back for who you REALLY are- maybe (sadly) not the way you want him/her to love you back or give you that special feeling you need -I had to learn that in a very painful way- but there is someone that will have an open ear for you, who is interested in you and your interests. And for me there is only one person that can give me the feeling of being sth worth & only for this one special person I want to be THIS person.
It is so painful when love is unrequited ... I know that...but someday you will find (or maybe someone finds you :) ) someone who searched for the love only you can give him!! And this person can also answer you the question -beside yourself and your friends- who you are. But you are the one who really knows who you are. Even if the time is hard and you feel pushed down to the bottom of your feelings and you're irritated, you will learn from it, rise from it and only you truely know what your inner feelings are and what you aim for.

and ... You are a writer. And i can say as a "drawer" that also this gives me a special feeling to who I am and what I want to make out of my life... when it is about dreams...

I'd like to read what you think about my answer and sorry for my long response but there was no other way to tell you what I was thinking because there were so many words roatating in my mind and I think I couldn't even hit the point of what i wanted to say- maybe because I have to deal with the same question as you many many times.

best wishes to you
Madlyn
