self-hatred by NikolasBrummer self-hatred by NikolasBrummer
deep down in our hearts, it lingers. it's this feeling; just a short time ago we told ourselves that no one really mattered in the sense of whatever they think of us, that's up to them and not to us. we no longer care and live up to no one's expectations; but the more we turn away from everyone else, the more we let go, the more we tighten our grip around ourselves. we want to succeed; not for them, not for her, but simply for ourselves. we've set limits, guidelines and rules ... and if we fail, we fall apart.
and the feeling comes creeping up inside of us and we can no longer help it ... we are numb. we are ourselves. we are worthless. and most of all ... we never had the decision if we wanted it to come this way or not. so all we do is watch the play.

(I really can't help it, usually I don't like writing something like this after an artist's-comment; but to everyone out there, I'm feeling fine today. I really do. just in case anyone worried or anyone wanted to cheer me up. you are all lovely souls)

When I first looked at it, I saw the inner demon concept, but than I thought about the Looking Glass from Alice Adventures in Wonderland. That made me think maybe you have to look pass your demons to find wonder.
