Who Am I? by nocturnal-schism Who Am I? by nocturnal-schism
"I am who I am and will never be anyone else however hard someone may try to change me I can never be anyone except myself. So who actually am I? That is possibly a quite intruiging question actually because I don't quite know, all I know is that you will know better than I do. You see my actions and hear all of my words you feel happiness and sadness when I speak and through all my actions in fact you drew your opnion in the very first seconds you met me, whether you like to admit it or not you decided what you thought of me long before you ever really had the chance to get to know who I really before you ever got the chance to find what makes me tick and keeps me going along the way that I have chosen to go in my life. But what is it that actually makes me, me? Its the experiences I will not forget, the people I have met, the things that have been said to me, those are what make me, me. They are the things that make me react the way I do and make me say the things that I say, yet I know that deep down, no matter how hard I, or another tries, I am still me and you are still you and that is a quality that no one else in the world can even claim to have nor understand, each person you meet in the street, that guy in the office next door, the woman at the store who caught your eye, everyone is a different person so complex inside, the things they have seen, and done through their entire lives yet we still do not understand why we are all unique. Is it in my DNA? That which makes me, me? Or is it something locked away in my brain? Memories maybe? All I know is that there is something somewhere in each of us that defines what you see in front of you today, one who can't be changed no matter what. Yet through all this, I am still me, and you are still you."

NinjaZombieSlayer164 Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I thought this was amazing, I found myself reading this without even trying to, I just started staring at it and processed the words, and I thought this was a cool feeling within itself. They word are beautiful and a work of art within themselves, and they way they were presented make the piece oh so delicious to the eye. amazing.

I am still me, and you are still you. That is powerful. Reading those last nine words just leaves you with this feeling that I can't put into words... The entire thing is so thought-provoking =D great job

Hi. I was just wondering...What song is your signature from? And who sings it? I heard it on the radio a week or so ago and now...I feel like it's following me...But I've never found out what it is. Help would be appreciated. :)
AdmiralChurch Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2011  Hobbyist Artist
Alive Again by Matt Maher. One of my favorites. :D
Lady-CrusaderKira Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist

Welcome. And is your picture from Doctor Who?
Lady-CrusaderKira Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes it is! :D Do you watch?
AdmiralChurch Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2011  Hobbyist Artist
Yes! It's an awesome show. Started with the 10th. Seen some of the 9th. And now I'm just waiting on the next season.
Lady-CrusaderKira Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Yay! Another Whovian. :) I have to admit I'm obsessed...Started watching reruns on TV with my uncle when I was three years old. And now I'm utterly preoccupied with the Doctor and all of them. ^ ^

So what's the last episode you've seen?

Holy crap!:wow:
This is amazing and So. Damn. Cool.

This is something we all say to ourselves, that we know who we are.
But do we really?
We are changing every single day with each new experince and each new person we meet, we morph, evolve. What we like, dislike, stand for, hate or defend can change everyday or every year.
This really captures the actual uncertainty of knowing who we are
