One day he came home,

A man given freedom.

He looked in the mirror,

And liked what he saw...


The days wore on,

And he lived his life.

Morning PT was a distant memory,

So too were the shouts of a Sergeant.

Training came thrice at first,

Then twice, then once,

Then none...

The days wore on...


And life became harder,

Sacrifices were made.

He looked in the mirror one day,

And didn't like what he saw.

Not anymore...


Not the pot-bellied man working for a few scraps.

Nor the slovenly fellow who'd forgotten how to clean his kit.

He earned his freedom, but he had lost what he respected...

And the days wore on...


And so he went out running, one fateful day,

His lungs burning with every breath.

Yet despite the pain inside his chest, 

He resolved the soldier, would return to his best.


"You've been gone a long time Corporal Chen, what say we go once more around 
the yard!"


-Word of Chen, One-shot, 24 February 2015

Hey everyone,

Really sorry for the lack of updates. I'll update you all in the journal tomorrow, but basically I can't make my album releases because I can't get any voice work done till I get my own apartment.

That said, I'll continue to make some decent filler for you all to enjoy ^^ or take photos when I can :'3

This particular piece deals with my struggles these past few months. You can take the soldier out of the army, but in the end you can't take the army out of the soldier. Most of my readers know that I served in the military at one point and over the years I guess I've just totally let my fitness get run down. I made many excuses citing, life, work, etc. as reasons for letting it happen, but in the end, I should have done better.

Looking at myself in the mirror, I really can't stand the sight so I've been working to get back into a my old guardsman shape (^_^). Cheer me on yeah?

Yo yo everyone, 

It's your boy, it's your BOY! And he is back with another photograph for you to enjoy.

Now with this one basically I got a shot of the playground and then I turned it into like a sketch thing from one of those fairy tale books.

Do let me know if you're enjoying my foray into photography because I know my lit. is hitting the tops, but I definitely need to know if you love the photography. So please, fave, comment and tell me if you might want prints of this stuff in future!

- Your Boy, Chennie :iconwordofchen:

P.S. From now on I AM THE TABLE! No questions asked x'D
Loading...
It really wasn't...

And I know that I can twist this truth as much as I want...

Whenever I'm sober, when I know I can put up that fake plastic smile;

Just a few formal words that burn like acid from a liar's lips!

"Differences in personality, a divergence in ideals..."

Please, fucking, SPARE ME!

Because when I look in this mirror, I know.

When I see myself looking back at me, I know.

Right here, right in front of my own blackened self;

Those eyes that both reflect and stare into my dingy soul.

I was the problem.

I was the instigator.

I was the perpetrator.

And when I had broken every last bit of her,

I was the one, who let it all fall to pieces.

So please, you don't have to feel sorry for me,

I am a bastard and I've got a very special place in hell waiting for me...

It Was Never You...

Author's Comment:

Alright my dear readers,

As promised, here is my next release for Darkest Hour.

This poem is about my personal feelings, especially because I am burdened with what I believe to be a sin of a past. For me, I honestly think, there will never be redemption and what suffering I endure in life is mere penitence.

If you too carry such a burden, then may we be brothers or sisters in hell, as we are now in life. Warriors till the end, may our blades never dull. FOR HONOUR!

- Your Boy, Chennie :iconwordofchen:

P.S. Forgot to add my fave target. Since I'm still climbing the road to the good old days. Last time I blew past 100 so let's go for 150 tonight. Not sure if I'll hit it, but let's give it our best, Ooh-rah! x'D

I missed a release yesterday, was going to show you all another photo I took but I chickened out, took awhile for my assistant to talk me out of deleting everything I did. #artistproblems 

But seriously, I am really sorry about that and I will make it up to you with an amazingly emotional release for tonight!

The darkest hour album is fully completely now and all eight poems can be found in the contents list below :'3

Don't forget to check up on how you can help me with my new author's tag and my upcoming commissions!

TIME-LINE UPDATE!

Okay, so as you all know, I've got a main project running: My Darkest Hour album.

Cover by Zoe Hayes: 

Cover by Anophior: Darkest Hour: Word of Chen by Anophior

It will consist of the following pieces:

1. Perfectly Comfortable (POSTED on 9th Feb 2015:  Perfectly ComfortableYou are comfortable now,
Though tired from your day at work.
You lay your head upon the pillow,
And you start to fall asleep...
It is quiet in your apartment,
The silence is soothing.
You soon begin to dream,
And though your dream is initially pleasant...
Something seems to be off in the things you see around you.
You find yourself walking through the streets,
The old pavement beneath your apartment.
It looks like it always has except for all those cracks in the stone.
Crick-crack, crick crack.
You turn your eyes from the paving,
To see the streets lined with people.
Shivering, grim; their eyes hold little hope,
Save for a warm night' meal.
You begin to feel a little more frightened.
Your tie is getting pretty tight.
You stagger into your office, your lips going blue.
You try to alert someone,
But your colleagues no longer have faces...
They are simply mouths, large and unrelenting,
Belting you with a storm of words that drowns you out.
You are silenced, in a world
)
2. Standing By the Open Window
3. Drowning in People
4. I'm Scared...
5. Injustice - YOU are not the God among us.
6. You Pushed Us Too Far
7. It Was Never You
8. You Left Me Cold

I will be posting them according to this awesomely epic schedule:

- 16th February - Release for Darkest Hour
- 17th February - Sacrifice to the Dark Gods! (i.e. make up for missing a release on the 15th)
- 18th February - Release for Darkest Hour
- 19th February - Special One-Shot :'3
- 20th February - Rest
- 21st February - Photography!

So guys and girls, please look forward to some more interesting stuff by your boy Chennie!

Other Things:

I am thinking of getting a new author tag and I don't know if anyone would be willing to help (especially since I can, at this point, only offer thanks and lots of hugs), but if someone could take the symbol of the Inquisition from Warhammer 40k:

 

And turn it into an author-tag for me, I would be greatly appreciative. I really like the Inquisition from 40k and I think it would be really cool to have a tag like that :D (Big Grin).

I could write something for you in exchange for it :'3 Barter is good .3. Yeeeees *Sneaky goblin voice*

-Your Boy, Chennie :iconwordofchen:

COMMISSIONS WILL BE OPENING...EVENTUALLY - BUT FIRST, DETAILS!:

Alright, so I've promised commissions for a long time and I'm going to talk about them here.

For the time being, commissions will be POETRY ONLY.

Prices are: $1 and $5 [But they are not fixed, more on that later]

Why am I opening commissions?: Well, in order to get back to making youtube shows for you guys, I need new equipment, my old stuff is badly out of date. I have a new webcam for you guys and a fairly decent ghetto microphone that I use for my recorded pieces, but I still need a mask! It was planned for my Holy Man persona, but I think I could get some really good showmanship up if I had one.

I plan on buying this mask: ant-supplies.co.uk/Pages/HalfF…

And so, to cover shipping and the like I will need to make around $45, and that is leaving some leeway.

Also considering I am not quite as popular as I was, I can't be expecting the $10 commissions for a piece of poetry like I used to get back in the heyday. Though if anyone wants to donate to the cause and commish me in the future, I'd be grateful.

Anywho, back to the topic. To purchase the mask, I am funding myself with commissions. I think that $5 is pretty fair for a custom-made poem in any style or form that you wish, of course with my full Chennie-boy flair included and you do get advertised because I'm going to put it in about 400 - 500 groups and your name and icon and a description about you as an artist is going to be in the commission's description (those who have commissioned me before, know how it works ^^).

However, I do also realize that $5 can be pretty steep for most people, so I'm willing to do simple poetry for $1. All funds will go to the mask and NOTHING ELSE. Think of it like a mini-kickstarter for myself.

If you would like to offer more than $5 to help me purchase the mask sooner, then we can discuss privately via notes. I will try to offer what I can for those willing to help me out (^_^)/

Anyway, WHEN will he commissions be opening?: Early March seems to be ideal as I need to first move into my new apartment and get set up there. For now I'm just staying at my auntie's place and doing commission work from here does not seem like a fantastic idea really. So yes, do look forward to that :'3

Remember, the sooner I get my stuff, the sooner I can teach you the custom Word of Chen gangsigns!

A Home By The River
Hey guys,

As promised, here is the surprise. Your boy Chennie has made his first foray into Photography.

Well, to be frank, I just opened up the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 which I received as a gift last year and finally got around to using it. I then discovered that its camera had some cool features and I decided to have a go and snap some shots :'3

Do let me know if you like this stuff, because I find the normal photos I take completely bland. I would rather make the normal more interesting by making it look like artworks etc. :'3

Anyway, please do enjoy guys (^_^)/
