for the underdogs by Checkered-Fedora for the underdogs by Checkered-Fedora
Even now I feel like this sometimes.

Guys there is always going to be skyscrapers towering above you but just remember all the little buildings lurking in their shadows are still important.

Keep standing tall and believe in yourself and you'll climb higher and higher, but no matter where you stand just remember you are still important.

After all every single comment...every single fave...that means someone cares enough to look ^^ And isn't that pretty awesome by itself!

Thank you to EVERYONE who supports me, faves me, watches me, loves on me! You guys are all important to me <3 Much love.

~Senny

The thing is,

You're not the underdog, for the reason that they're not your enemies.

You may be small, but you are part of something, and that- not in individual efforts, but in your place in the machine- makes you great.

The words were a bit difficult to read in the smallest font, otherwise the image and the poem go well together.

You are such an inspiring force to the dA community. :love:

I remember seeing you around ~pchaness's account and you seemed familiar.
When I just started my account over again, I did your charity meme. :heart:
And then when I came to your gallery and I found this piece, I remembered it from your old account.

:huggle: I'm so glad you're still here and continuing to spread the love. Thanks!!

Would it be possible for someone--anyone?--to transcribe this for me? I absolutely love this and wanted to quote it but I have a hard time seeing some of the smaller text. Any help would be greatly appreciated. :)

As soon as I can I'm buying this. I wanna get the biggest size available so I can hang it in my room for constant motivation. :hug: Thank you, Senni, for creating this and sharing this heartwarming msg with me and everyone else.

actually when I made it I was working in a smaller size. So it doesn't come any bigger than 8.5X11. An oops on my part.

in a world of skyscrapers I feel so small,
overcast in shadows.

but I'm here...can you see me?

Giants high above me, dont even have to try to reach the sky...
for they are already there...

psst hey...can you see me? I'm down here.

Baring my heart to earn a few smiles.
I may not be there, shining atop unreachable skyscrapers
I'm so small...and the sky is so very far away

But I'm okay down here...under the shadows...away from fame's light

all I ask, is dont forget I'm here.

I am the underdog

quiet and unnoticed

If you look closely

maybe if you squint

...

I'm down here...can you see me now?

Aww. Well, that's still a fairly good size. I can live with that. (ooh. Just a "thinking out loud" moment here. Maybe you could make another ver. someday? As a sort of celebratory piece to all the positive attention this one's gotten?)

Thaaank you. :hug:

I faved this a couple months ago, I was looking back at it and remembered how true and beautiful it is. :sniff:
I've been pretty sick lately and it's been making me feel pretty low to the ground, but this made me remember how there are always people that make me feel closer to the sky.

(God that sounded corny. But seriously thanks :) )

Oh woah, how this make me feel, is a way a keyboard cant express. That is very truthfull, the art i do is not a very popular kind, and will probably go unnoticed, but i hve gotten 1 fave on a pic, and that was splendid. You eem to be a popular one, so you probably dont really care what i may say, but thats that.

i like this poem. it reminds people that the top elite people aren't the only people here. there's others too. invisible people not seen by most needing... dying for someone to notice them.

how could you not love this poem? :heart:
