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 Id 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 Im 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 dont 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 isnt the last of weezythanxyou.com I will continue to thank you when Im 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 couldnt 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 Ive 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 theres a picture of the bed by the water where I dream to be with the woman in the picture that still wont smile. I sometimes talk to the picture, but it never responds. Although, Ive 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 shes there. And when I dream, Im 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!
