(And their five star reviews!)

But nothing feels better than knowing someone liked the work you made, worked hard on, and then threw out to the cold world not only to find a home, but a warm, loving one.

I would say I am a parent but I know how hard that can be.

And it gives one such confidence - though, better not overstep it. I am...encouraged to keep on writing and drawing, though.

Anyone else has felt the same?
I have never really cried over a girl,

But Leelah brings the water to the edge of my eyes.

Looking at all the hate makes me hurl.

Leelah is disrespected, disparaged, as her last message soars throughout the skies.


I know, and I remind, painfully, that liberty is the freedom to do as one wishes, so long as no one is hurt.

So why is there so much hate?

All because she felt comfortable in a skirt.

How long will we all have to wait?


There is hope; we speak!

Above the cries of hate, we strive!

We know how the world can be - bleak.

And she shall fly as we, below, constructively skive.
A Poem about Leelah Alcorn
Before 2014 ends here, let me to Ms Leelah add endear.

But yea. Leelah has become nearly a martyr. She, and thousands of suicides, murders, attacks, and disenfranchised individuals, all build up a mountain of tales, lives, and struggle. I am not saying Leelah is more or less important than those had go unheard - but in her parent's attempts to stomp her out, both in live and in death, she has grown stronger and her message - which is in her suicide note - to be heard more.

We as a world have a long way to go. But - I think it's coming. The world is, well, a bleak place, and for many places of the world, they still will be lagging behind by the half-century. But so what? It is a daunting task, of course it is! And no matter how big the dragon, it shall be slayed.

Why? Look above to the poem.

"I know, and I remind, painfully, that liberty is the freedom to do as one wishes, so long as no one is hurt."

Despots and authoritarians and totalitarians are all hated. And even when our own system struggles, we work to bring it back, left or right or wherever we lean. That definition of Liberty comes from the French Revolution: 

The Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen of 1789 defined Liberty in Article 4 as follows:

Liberty consists of being able to do anything that does not harm others: thus, the exercise of the natural rights of every man or woman has no bounds other than those that guarantee other members of society the enjoyment of these same rights.

There is also an major sibling to the above clause :

Equality, on the other hand, was defined by the 1789 Declaration in terms of judicial equality and merit-based entry to government (art. 6):

[The law] "must be the same for all, whether it protects or punishes. All citizens, being equal in its eyes, shall be equally eligible to all high offices, public positions and employments, according to their ability, and without other distinction than that of their virtues and talents."

You might have the weak assertion that "WE'RE NOT FRENCH LOLOLOL" So what? Liberty is liberty, equality is equality. Democracy has to juggle with protecting its citizens, listening to the majority, preventing both mob rule and oligarchy - and it all rests on the PEOPLE to do it. 

So for Liberty, equality, even democracy and common sense : lets prevail in another milestone.

This shall be my last work of 2014. How proud of it I am.

Above Pluto
Kaakyire, after her cyborgization and enrollment into the Consular-Democratic army, visits the TABERNA PLUTONIS (Plutonic Bar) in orbit around the habitable moon that orbits, in turn, the 'living' rogue planet Pluto at the edge of the Solar System.
