Runs Within - a Motif Project

BY KARYNA WALLACE
@ VOL 97 ON NOV 28, 2012

This is a poem and a story that revolves around the prints she developed under the theme "Vampires," as assigned by her professor. She offers up a new interpretation, and instead of drawing bats and bloody black cats, she analyses a vampire's needs and wants, and then compares it to us humans. She notices that what runs within us -- our needs and wants -- takes us through several stages of emotions throughout our lives, as we grow spiritually and physically. We all experience them, and the point is when -- and if -- we can reach our ultimate goal. (in English)
