Letter #10: The End of a Long Journey

Hello world! My world! Our world!

As I greet you all in my last days on this island, I must reflect. I think back to when I first arrived and I had no clue of what I’d be experiencing. I was never scared, worried, nor bothered by the situation. For that, I thank God, my family, and you, my amazing fans. I prayed for you all every night, as I’m aware that I was in your prayers as well. The very first day that I received mail, it was about 300 pieces or more! I smiled like a child of Christmas. But when I began to read them, my heart smiled. I laughed with some of you, reasoned with some of you, and even cried with some of you. I responded to as many of you that time would allow. I plan to keep reading and responding after my release. I thank you all for being so very supportive, as I never imagined how much impact my words and life can have. With this knowledge, I vow to continue to be me! For you have assured time that I don’t have to change for no one but God. I will be the same Martian I was when I left, just better. You fans are more than amazing, and I will for to the end of the world for your love. This isn’t the last of weezythanxyou.com I will continue to thank you when I’m home.

I simple LOVE you all.

P.S. Thanx for supporting my YM team the way you do!!

Now I like to thank my wonderful family and friends for never letting me down. Your love and support is worth the world. I am grateful for you all and I couldn’t have done it without your love. Also, I thank everyone who came to visit me. That shit meant a lot, straight up! I would do the same, if not more for you.

Now I must dedicated something to the woman in the picture…

…sitting on this bed with my back against one of the four walls I’ve been confined to, all I can think of is you. Staring at you staring at me, from the picture of you that I see. I try so hard to make the picture smile. You look so serious. Seriously beautiful. You, me, we are one. Then I look further to the right and there’s a picture of “the bed by the water”… where I dream to be with the woman in the picture that still won’t smile. I sometimes talk to the picture, but it never responds. Although, I’ve been told that a picture speaks a thousands words, I only wish that this picture would speak of four… “I love you too.” That would be the perfect response to what I frequently say to it. You see, the picture of “the bed by the water” has sand in it, and the woman in the other picture has sand in her hair… put them together, and she’s there. And when I dream, I’m there with her. Shhh… quietly these four walls become that place in the picture. And the woman in the picture begins to whisper… “I love you too”… she responds!

And now she smiles. Imagination is perfect.

Dedicated to the woman in the picture.

Gone!

  46. rosia says:

    i pray for you and you familly kiss for you

  47. Elena says:

    Weezy, Lil Wayne or Dwayne what ever you prefer to be called or remembered by… as corny as it may be I love ur words regardless of it’s subject or content… u are an inspiration to me through thick and thin, there are days were you dissapoint me with your over worked soul and over used ideas. I feel ur pain and whatever little happiness you try to portray, but I feel mostly the solitude of ur own 4 walls… If it’s any conselation I feel you on that. lol you know I have pictures of you on my wall? I’m not even sure myself why I have them up but I like looking at you, you don’t smile either (not often and even when I see ur smile it seems to be distant and only momentary). I haven’t talked to you as you talk to [her] but I keep you in my mind 24/7. I wouln’t ever listen to you if it wasn’t for Eminem, who captured me with his words back in Russia… I didn’t even know what he was saying yet I listened to his emotion, and it was so real to me. That’s what music does I guess… and you are my music, I love your ryme and ur crazy stoner imagination, because it makes me feel I’m not alone on those ideas. I’ve wanted to meet you since I first heard you voice, Drop The World was the song. And I swear if it wasn’t for that song I might have not been so happy with where I’m at right now. U know what makes me mad though? You work too hard, as in u r music but you don’t have to be… there is something called life and bay u need to take a deep breath, smoke a blunt and hold [her] till your tears are dry… I’ll continue to think about you. Sunshine

  48. Kei Walters says:

    D. Carter (Weezy) how happy I am that you are in our presence physically again. You have been missed but always kept in mind. We all are reading your thank you letters but I want to send a thank you post to you for being loyal to your fans. I do know that we all cant be responded to but I hope that your eyes meet with this post and feel the love being shown from one of your biggest fans.

    Love, Kei
