Happy birthday, Eminem

To someone I’ve known since I was 5, and loved since I was 12. To someone I would have imploded without knowing his music, I’m glad you’ve made it to 40. To someone who almost overdosed, but managed to overcome his drug addiction and get back into his music. You’ve made my life easier in some ways, you’ve made me think more. You’re musics made me cry. You’ve helped me overcome things in my life that’s really killed a part inside of me. You saved me from myself, you’ve saved me from feeling completely alone. You’re music has been something that has finally let me let some things go, and express my emotions when I just can’t. In “Sing for the Moment,” one of your last lines says, “That’s why we sing for these kids, who don’t have a thing. Except for a dream, and a fuckin’ rap magazine, who post pin-up pictures on their walls all day long, Idolize they favorite rappers and know all they songs. Or for anyone who’s ever been through shit in their live, till they sit and they cry at night wishin’ they’d die. Till they throw on a rap record and they sit, and they vibe We’re nothin’ to you but we’re the fuckin’ shit in they eyes.”

At one point in my life, that line gave me hope. That kept me going when I wanted to die from the pain in my heart and the trouble going on in my family. I’m so much better now, thanks to God, and thanks to your lyrics which gave me comfort in my hard time. And I know there’s so many other people you’ve saved and helped. You’re my hero. ♥
