This Deserves a Feature On Its Own

Because the reception it's receiving now is actually becoming really, really surprising and I'm so damn happy to see this. All of you guys are inspiring me and I thank you all for being fearless. Thank you all for being so freaking beautiful and honest and amazing in your own perfectly imperfect skin. This is why I called myself chromeantennae because I want to spread my message and I never expected anyone to listen, but now that people are-- it's so humbling. This is exactly what I want to do with my time here. I want to inspire creation and right now this is exactly what is happening and I couldn't be prouder.

With suggestion, I've added my own deviation so you all can see what prompted this to begin with:

And here all of the pieces (besides mine) that seemed to have stem from one another in some way and I will add more every time someone writes a poem or response on this topic that was directly inspired by this:

This is really really great...I almost want to write one myself but I don't know. Might help me be more accepting of myself and those pesky "imperfections". Anyways, great collection! You've started something great my friend.

I need to have a proper read of all of this, but I'm behind!  None the less, it's a great feature, that serves to prove, whoever you are, we all struggle with issues.  Yet all of us can shine through in so many ways.  Unafraid, warts/boils and all. Still beautiful!
