If you want, you can message it to me through the forums! I just have an extra email and it would be easy for me to put poems on different docs since that email is clean

      Okay, so my sister showed me this site and I have spent a lot of time on it since making some pretty cool stuff; its a manga creator website, though its not all that advanced or anything. You simply click a game and you can alter the looks of characters and change their clothing as well as add text. I went to Picmonkey so as to add some diff text on one of the pics. 
      For the contest I want you to create a manga, you can do multiple images and put them all together into a story. Please provide text on every picture. Anyway, I just thought this contest would be cool because I have not seen anything like it before. It will last till saturday this week and people will vote on which manga they liked the best! Winner will get a choice between all my points or 50 Community rep. 
      Here are some things I have made on Rinmarugames.com, they aren't meant to go together, they are just standalone images. 




       
      Anyway, if you have any questions or don't understand please feel free to ask.

      Cost
      Each and every victory comes at a cost
      So what are you willing to give?
      Every victory has a bridge to be crossed
      So how long can you walk, just to live?
      Each victory sparks pride in your soul and it's fire
      But the price for your freedom is so extraordinarily high
      How far are you willing to go just to fly higher?
      Oh, what if you get too close to the sun and die?
      Victory! Victory! Shout it from the rooftop
      For you've over come a demon in your own mind
      The cost! The cost! Don't stand to close to the roof's drop
      Of you might just find the demons you didn't leave behind.
      In a moment of joy you feel over come
      With the pride that you've fought another day
      But that moment passes and you succumb
      To the feeling in your head that says, "It's doomsday!"
      You fought for your victory but you'll die for the cost
      For one small victory does not over come your own mind
      If no one helps you quick then your entire life may be lost
      For your mind kills you slowly and every night you unwind.
      So don't cheer too fast and don't smile too quick
      For a victory is a mere battle won, not the war
      And you may find that you blood runs thick
      When the demons come knocking at your door.

      Better
      My plate is full but I can't seem to eat
      Just turning the fork over in my hand
      And I feel too big for this large seat
      So I'll just excuse myself and stand
      Go outside, once again, to pretend
      Like there is really nothing wrong
      Because I can see no nearing end
      And this play has drug on too long
      But I can't stop and I won't stop
      For if I did, I fear that I'd fail
      Be even worse, bottom to top
      I can't have that, so I set sail
      Into the abyss of my mind
      To ignore the growls
      And instead find
      The cruel howls
      That flood
      My blood
      Oh, I've been sick again today
      And cast out my retched meal
      For I fear it affects what I weigh
      And I'm sick of this, of how I feel
      I just can't seem to get any better
      Any worse though and I'd be dead
      I don't really fit in my sweater
      But "I'm better." I said
      For now I look quite thin
      But they don't think so
      And I can never win
      So here, here wo go
      Once again I will feel
      This awful, horrid pain
      But I won't kneel as I
      Feel my blood drain
      Am I good enough now?
      Am I good enough now?
      I just didn't know what to do ...
      I don't know what you want
      I don't know what you want
      And now I don't know what's true ...

      Anxiety 
      Awake at sunrise
      Watching the sky
      Everything once dies
      But, what then, am I?
      For pain is unto death
      And fear is unto the grave
      I can't take a single breath
      So please, come and save
      Me, Myself and I
      From this terrible fate
      No longer looking at the sky
      Now too tired, too late
      For the sky is alight
      Yet the world is in black
      The sun shines bright
      But I only turn my back
      For when the sun doth rise
      I finally take my sleep
      For in sleep I say my goodbyes
      And in dreams I doth not weep
      But only when the sun doth shine
      I finally lay down my head
      On the pillow beside me and mine
      In this grave I call a bed
      For I stay awake 'til I cannot
      Then I finally turn on my side
      For in the dark I doth rot
      But when the sun rises, I hide
      For this mind of mine is sick
      It is twisted and broken
      For I hear the clock tick
      And not a word have I spoken
      For away I ran to my room
      So as not to let them see
      This pale, deathly doom
      That wraps its arms around me
      Holding tight, evermore
      Clutching now, my throat
      Loose me? Nevermore
      For in the dark it doth gloat
      Calling my name and taunting me now
      For it knows I have naught, if not for it
      But in my bed I doth lie, not ready to bow
      For still I fight, still I fight, but it will not fit
      For my fight brings only more pain and fear
      Only more agony for my heart to endure
      And I do not know if I draw ever near
      To the life I hate, or my precious cure
      For it is hard to tell when your eyes are blind
      Welling with tears caused by the fears
      That I suffer every night and can not bind
      For they continuously whisper in my ears
      And make my heart race so fast I fear
      I might fall dead, in this very bed
      That I have hated, yet loved through the years
      For I am naught, if I am not this dead ...

      The skeptics love
      Frost in the heir
      The cost of the crown
      Being lost isn't fair
      Tossed right on down ...
      Are you willing to pay in blood, my dear?
      Have you counted the cost of this crime?
      Are you willing to let yourself live in fear?
      Or will you take what is rightfully thine?
      A kingdom of fear
      A king of his own
      No one comes near
      Nor bows before the throne.
      A criminal child
      Lost in this place
      Alone and mild
      Yet caught in a chase.
      His crime I condone
      The plan I doth make
      For his crime is mine own
      And I will partake.
      Unstable, enabled
      Crying those tears
      labeled, fabled
      Lost in those years.
      Are you willing to pay in blood, my king?
      Have you counted the cost of this crime?
      Are you willing to let yourself do this thing?
      And harm this poor child another time?
      A kingdom of fear
      A king of his own
      Oh, come my dear
      He'll soon lose his throne.
      Fairy tales, fables
      A self appointed king
      Let us turn the tables
      On this unsuspecting thing.
      We can not say 'I am the victim, therefor I shall do not.' 
      Just because we are but scared of what's to come
      Instead say, 'I am victor for what I have wrought!'
      And leave your jailer feeling immensely dumb.

      So, my dear child, so cold and so frail
      So lost in this world, full of flashing lights
      Take heed, take courage and remove the veil
      Do not fear what's to come, as you fear the nights.
      Pull back the curtain to reveal the trick
      Hide not your face, nor your fear
      Instead, with bravery, take the candlestick
      And shine a light on the lies, my dear.

      For a crime is thought up by one higher than thou
      But, pray tell, who appointed him this privilege?
      Who gave him the right to say what we allow?
      Who doth say his decision is not sacrilege?
      For why is one's word seen as better than thine?
      And, placing his judgement, what if we doth not agree?
      Why can't I say 'you're pardoned, freed!' with mine
      And his word be found as nothing, in respect to thee?
      For is it truly fair that they make decisions on what we can and cants' do?
      Why can't I step up and say, 'your word is but word, such as mine, such as thine.'
      And break down their dumb, ever changing rules? Why cants' I break through?
      I know this is society, the way that it's built, but who didst' make it's design?
      These words from mine mouth have been seen as heresy
      So hath I been cast from mine own gilded home
      Labeled unfit, unwell, no longer a clerisy
      For knowledge is but lies, if outside of their dome.
      Now, take heed my little one and listen close to my words
      Never go with the crowd just because it's preferred
      For they hath been like sheep for centuries, stupid herds
      Following blindly into pits, but you must fly like a bird.
      For you doth know I am a skeptic
      Reserved in my trust
      Pulling apart every brick
      And questioning the dust.
      So too should you question their every breath
      Watch them close, my dear, and never blink
      Always taking care, up until your very death
      For they will, in a second, push you off the brink.
      So, forgive me now, if I speak too plain
      But I've loved you for a thousand years
      And your life is not to be lived in vain
      So I shall protect you, through a thousand fears.
      And I know, 'tis true, they will damn you and your crime
      But please, my dear, do not fear, for I will take the blame
      And, standing in the gallows, I will remember every time
      You smiled my way and made me say, "Your praise I will proclaim."
      So do not fear, I'll hold you near, even if this one last time
      And I will kiss your cold skin, breathe in the frost
      Then, marching to the gallows for this crime
      I will, for you, pay this bloody cost. 

      For on this day a skeptic has found love
      And on this day I will stand, taking the blame
      For all my pessimism leaves as I stare above
      Realizing I'll never be skeptical of thy name ...
