Sometimes I think it could be for the best.
Maybe it is what you see as a test.

We were friends, we were allies.
We took on the world, with our heads held up high.
What happened, what changed?
Why did what we have, suddenly have to go and die?

Is it over? Are we done?
A strange mix of feelings, they're hard to describe.
Did it matter? Was it worth it?
Your intentions leaving questions, they're all that reside.

Must advance, need to dance.
The world is still waiting, and our light needs to shine.
Can't hold back, can't be slack.
Our group is now ready, to make our advance towards the finish line.

You may have chosen this path, you may have made some bad choices.
But you're a friend until the end, that is my opinion and I'll voice it.

Best of Luck.

-Lourwind.
A poem by me, Lewin Griffin. Lead artist of House of Heroes.

Not sure what to make of it all. This situation still hurts a lot and I'm just glad to have the rest of the group trucking on strong even though we're down a member.

I feel though, a slight reassuring excitement building as I watch the other members, including our new members, prepare their new projects for our Studio.

Be it the winds of change, a positive change, I believe that is what I feel is coming.

As for this poem, I rarely throw up my poetry, as I've never been good with words.

Consider this a rare treat. The quality won't be as good as Chen's poems, but it was never about competitiveness, merely a tribute to a friend.

I'll be off to prepare tonights funny comics now.

-Lourwind.

To all our supporters and fans, know that we care for all of you, and appreciate all the support you have given us these past few months.

Even more so, we hope you like the new changes coming your way, allowing you to be more involved with the studio.

Words I thought I'd never heard for my poems, I've never been good with poems, however, you've demanded more and more you shall get! I will write another later today. :)

Really sweet and nicely said. Doesn't matter whether you feel your poetry is as good, it's just different and comes from the heart. Isn't that what really counts?

Exactly, in fact, irony. Why irony? A friend today told me that I should express myself in another form, to help vent how I felt about what happened. This was the result of me attempting such, and I feel, despite my limited experience with poems in general, I pulled it off okay. As always, I really appreciate your thoughts.

You post a lot, and your messages are always to the point. For that, I thank you. :)

Your friend is right. Your expression won't be the same but so what. It is only different. You put your heart into what you were trying to say and that is what truly counts. You are very welcome for whatever little I've done to maybe help.

Thanks, it honestly means a lot. I've very little experience with poems, but I tried to release what I felt, was how my heart felt at the time, as suggested by a close friend. This was the end result.

I hope to try again later today, I've had a few requests to continue and I plan to do so. ^_^

You may not have Chen's way with words, but this is still pretty good. I like it.

Yeah, my poetry was never good, presumably why I never upload it, at least not often anyway. Besides, this was more of a tribute to him as a friend.

I'm glad you like it though, I don't know if I'll ever be up to his quality. But comics will always be my strong point, and they are where my heart is at.

Well, Chen's stuff is good, but there always seems to be this dark tinge to it. I think you should uplouad some more of stuff; it makes a nice contrast from Chen's work.

I do agree, and to be honest, I try and stray as far from the negative and darker sides of things. The world is full of that kind of thing as it is, without needing to add to it.

With that said, you and several others have requested I continue uploading my poems. So, I believe I will continue. With experience, hopefully I'll be able to in time produce works as good as others here on DA. :)

I'll still continue with my comics though. I love comedy, and making it. :P

Don't be afraid to not have it rhyme. Follow your instncts and have an approximate theme in mind. That really helps.

awwww thats so sad... I'll miss Chen too, but Fate works in strange ways.
You guys will still be friends, though, right?

Yeah of course, he left on good terms. There was no fight or any situation to lead us to feel otherwise on the matter. It was simply a situation that he felt could only be fixed by his leaving.

However, it came as a surprise and none of us were honestly expecting it.

I didn't see it coming either.. But as long as he left on good terms, and you guys are still friends. I mean, stuff like that happens all the time, and if he felt it was the right thing to do, then you cant stop him, but its still sad that he left.. :cry:
