"We Are Pilots" by RizCifra "We Are Pilots" by RizCifra
Holding close my secrets
Naked broken pieces
From the madness in what you do
The fingers point right back at you

What about my problems?
The people try to solve them
I guess I'm under the weather
Since no one else belongs here with me


Hello Mother
Some news for you
I'm really not that crazy
Hello Father
I'm curious
Why you think there's something wrong with me

Sunday I cried all night
And it hurt so bad
But if you try to understand

This is who I am

Color coated sweetness
Swords beneath my clean dress
I'm making sense of shattered dreams
Because I want you to be proud of me

What about my problems?
The people try to solve them?
I guess I'm under the weather
Since no one else belongs here with me

Hello Mother
Some news for you
I'm really not that crazy
Hello Father
I'm curious
Why you think there's something wrong with me

Sunday I cried all night
And it hurt so bad
But if you try to understand

This is who I am

For anyone who has ever felt misunderstood...

For anyone who has ever felt like he/she wasn't accepted for who he/she is...

For anyone who didn't know what to do with his/her life...

For anyone who has ever felt lost or alone...

There are brighter days that await you.

There is a place out there for you with people who care about you.

A place where you belong.

Never give up and always stay true to who you are.

You'll find it.

Uploading here because :iconkeinzantezuken: told me to using Canterlock ;_;

I wish I could explain what this hot mess that I threw up is, but like I enjoy doing with certain songs, I'd rather have people make their own story or apply their own meaning -- especially since this isn't at all what I originally planned. After hearing from a few friends who were going through tough times and learning of a fellow brony who was kicked out of his home for liking ponies, I just wanted to draw something for all those people who feel out of place or are going through a rough patch in their lives. I know the style and content are cheesy and clichéd, and I apologize.


I was originally going to draw a person, then a generic pony, but Ditzy Doo/Derpy Hooves came about and she is kind of the fandom mascot. It's like I see her and read all the fandom stories, and I can relate! Despite what some people say, despite her klutziness, she still carries on with a smile and that adorable wall-eyed expression. I admire that about her, and I admire that about many of you.

And ha! For once, I left off the cutie mark intentionally instead of by accident like I usually do. The reason is because before I started reading Ditzy Derp fan fiction and fan comics, I imagined that she could have been an older blank flank -- because I love the idea of adult blank flanks? Hey, adults can feel lost too! -- and I had it in my mind that she got her cutie mark, not necessarily because she found her one special talent, but because she found the one place where she truly belonged.


Ahaha, but that's me being silly and that doesn't necessarily apply to this comic. She could just be lost here because she's a silly pony!

Oh, and those are special bubbles. They survived the rain for a reason. Perhaps Celestia enchanted them? =] Maybe they're more spiritually symbolic/metaphorical? Who knows. That's up to you. I don't know squat, and it's always far more fascinating to hear other people's interpretations and ideas. X]



Thanks to everyone who came by so late and sacrificed sleep to drop by the stream! I'm sorry I was working so slowly and had to cut it off because of my headache.

This puts me in a mind of a sort of back ground story for Derpy. She was wandering around, alone, because no one understood her and though she was a blank flank freak because of her derpy eyes, and it was those bubbles that lead her to Ponyville, where she found a home and friends.
