No one can quite say it like you do. I mean it- I've read your poetry and seen your photographs, and I don't think anyone can say it the same way. That's because no one sees it the same way, no one lives it the same way, no one means it the same way. Not the way you do.

Diversity- it's that bittersweet combination of a wonderful thing and the terrible way we react to it.

Can you imagine the world if we all were the same? I can visualize it- a perfect beige wall, covered in perfect script of perfect poems displaying perfet happiness. Perfect happiness- in other words, extraordinary boredom.

You can't have good without bad, much as you cannot have a world without people that are completely different from one another. When we look at one another, do we see their extremities without looking farther and discovering who they are? Yes, I think we do. We are all like gems- literally covered in facets that display the brightest and darkest of us depending on where the light is coming from and what perspective you have. Much as we'd love things to be this way, you can't just look at someone and know all of them. I doubt anyone really even knows all of their own facets. People are constantly changing, becoming new and more and more uniquely themselves.

Diversity- that thing that puts up so many walls in our lives, but what I believe we wouldn't be able to live- really live- without.

Can we please tear down our walls for a moment so that we can see who is really on the other side?

Speak Your Voice

Hello, all, and welcome to Speak Your Voice, a group designed to allow anyone and everyone to have a voice! Here, we're not speaking with someone else's voice. You can speak with your voice.

Some introduction- My name is Autumn, and I am a novelist. For this reason, I spend a lot of my time doing observation on the world. Not many people can really speak out. People are always being bound by the chains of gender, age, social class, sexuality, personality, peer pressure, etc. Part of why I write- novels, poetry- and do art is to express my own voice, and to try to accurately express the voices of others whose voices cannot be heard, whose words cannot be spoken. So I've created this group to give you all a chance to speak your voices as well.

Just a couple of rules for you all...

:earth: Please respect everyone. Comments are appreciated, but must be appropriate and kind-spirited. Remember, treat others the way you'd like to be treated.

:earth: Submit deviations into the correct folder, please. The limit is three deviations per day, in any folder except for Featured. It's our showcase for the group, so if you have any suggestions for deviations that should really be there, please let me know! Deviations may be of any viewpoint, in any style. If you don't see a folder up there that you would like to submit to, feel free to contact me!

:earth: Please submit Favourites into the correct folders as well. The limit is also three submissions per day, in any folder except for Featured. Please do not submit your own work into Favourites. The point is to highlight the work of others!

:earth: Nothing offensive, please. Speak Your Voice is designed for people to have the freedom to voice their opinions, but there is also an element of common sense involved. Just because you have the freedom to say something doesn't necessarily mean you should.

If you need any clarification on anything, please contact me. I'm up to all sorts of questions or comments!

Thank you,

~Autumn :iconfrostedtail:

Hello there,

I am leaving deviantArt and am collecting points to see if I can fill my donation pool before Thanksgiving. I will give away all my 500 points as soon as the pool is full! If its not full, well, that's alright, I'll still donate, I just wanted to see if dA would return the love I've given it. It's a wonderful community and I will miss everyone.

Sorry, right now I'm a little too busy to join a group... but maybe in a couple of weeks, after my final exams.
