“Every heart beats a rhythm, and every pulse is triggered by a passion.”
I’m sure you get fan mail all the time and this might not be any different than the ones you receive/received whatever. This is aside from the usual “I’m your biggest fan,” type of letter. To be honest, I just want to thank you for everything. Without even meeting you, you have done more things for me than I could have possibly asked for from anyone. I listen to your music everyday I can never get enough of it, but it really seems far beyond that in what you have done for me. You have really been by my side in a sense through just about everything. It is just some things I’ll never forget that somehow ties into you. I remember when I was going through a nasty breakup and before the words “it’s over,” were spoken, I had just heard the beginning of “Look What You’ve Done.” Everything around me had crashed and burned to ashes. I went through a painkiller addiction for months. They were sitting on my counter and it hurt really bad knowing that it was killing me slowly. I was lucky to escape alive. It was the shittiest feeling in the world, being cheated on. I thought I would never get over it… But I did and most of that was due to the fact that you straightened yourself up with your relationship problems in the past. I thought to myself, “if Drizzy could do it, so can I.” So I stopped taking everything. It’s crazy how it has almost been two years since I quit and how my life has changed drastically. I have been trying my best to find out who I really am and how everything I went through would make sense one day. I tend to over think things a lot, but that’s just me and sometimes my thoughts can get the best of me. But I don’t doubt you being there for one second to help me through struggles that I endure and will continue to endure throughout my life. I’m not the type of fan to ask you to be my friend, or give me a follow on Twitter, or ask to meet you backstage at one of your concerts because I already consider you as a best friend. One that has never left my side. I know that when struggles will come into my life, I can always grab the nearest headphones and my iPod and sit there listening to your music. I zone out and it tends to make me feel more human than I already am. There is not one day that goes by where I don’t pray for you in your happiness and success. I’m so glad that you have your crew there for you because you deserve someone to be there for you for all the times that YOU have been there for people. You know for a while Drake, I really thought that life would not be worth living anymore, that I was just a useless person. A waste of space, oxygen, etc. Around the same exact time I said, “the hell with everything,” your music entered my life. It’s safe to say that those days blew my mind completely because the moment I started to doubt, your lyrics would pop up somewhere and you would help me believe in myself again. Thank you so much for everything. I feel like I owe you a lot of things… I’m forever grateful. It’s not like I have to tell you, but keep doing you Drake. I don’t mean to make this sound wrong, but I tend to thank God for your struggles in the past because those struggles are what made you today and how you continue to help me on my journey to unlocking the truth about myself. It has been a tough road, but when I look at that owl in the middle of my OVO sweater, I am always reminded that you are there helping me move forward. I hope this letter makes it to you someday somehow. I could go on about how I hope we cross paths one day and that I will get to meet you and how it will happen. I know that I will always attend your concerts whenever you’re in town. Much love. OVOXO.
P.S. From the concrete who knew that a flower would grow… Right?
