The Letter

It reads..

Whoever you are, wherever you are...I'm starting to think we're a lot alike. Human beings spinning on blackness. All wanting to be seen, touched, heard, paid attention to. My loved ones are everything to me here. In the last year or 3 I've screamed at my creator. Screamed at the clouds in the sky. For some explanation, mercy maybe. For peace of mind to rain like manna somehow. 
4 Summers ago, I met somebody. I was 19 years old. He was too. We spent that summer, and the summer after, together. Everyday almost. And on the days we were together, time would glide. 
Most  of the day I'd see him, and his smile. I'd hear his conversation and his silence...until it was time to sleep. Sleep I would often share with him. By the time I realized I was in love, it was malignant. It was hopeless. There was no escaping, no negotiating with the feeling, no choice. It was my first love, it changed my life. Back then, my mind would wander to the women I had been with, the ones I cared for and thought I was in love with.  I reminisced about the sentimental songs I enjoyed when I was a teenager...  
The ones I played when I experienced  a girlfriend for the first time. I realized they were written in a language I did not yet speak. I realized too much too quickly. Imagine being thrown from a lane. I wasn't in a plane though. I was in a Nissan Maxima, the same car I packed up with bags and drove to Los Angeles in. I sat there and told my friend how I felt. I wept as the words left my mouth. 
I grieved for them, knowing I could never take them back for myself. He patted my back. He said kind things. He did his best. But he wouldn't admit the same. He had to go back inside soon. It was late and his girlfriend was waiting for him upstairs. He wouldn't tell me the truth about his feelings for me for another 3 years. 
I felt like I'd only imagined reciprocity for for years. Now imagine being thrown from a cliff. No, I wasn't on a cliff. I was still in my car telling myself it was gonna be fine and to take deep breaths. I took the breaths and carried on. I kept up a peculiar friendship with him because I couldn't imagine keeping up my life without him. 
I struggled to master myself and my emotions. I wasn't always successful. The dance went on...I kept the rhythm for several summers after. It's winter now. I'm typing this on a plane back to Los Angeles from New Orleans. I flew home for another marred Christmas. I have a window seat. 
It's December 27, 2011. By now I've written two albums, this being the second. I wrote to keep myself busy and sane. I wanted to create worlds that were rosier than mine. I tried to channel overwhelming emotions. I'm surprised at how far all of it has taken me. Before writing this I'd told some people my story. I'm sure these people kept me alive. Kept me safe...sincerely. 
these are the folks I wanna thank from the bottom of my heart. Everyone of you knows who you are....Great humans, probably angels. I don't know what happens now. and that's alrite. I don't have any secretes I need kept anymore. 
There's probably some small shit still. But you know what I mean. I was never alone. As much as I felt like it...as much as I still do sometimes. I ever was. I don't think I ever could be. Thanks, to my first love. I'm grateful for you. grateful that even thought it wasn't what I hoped for and even though it was never enough. It was. Some things never are...And we were. I won't forget you. I wont forget the summer.  
I'll remember who I was when I met you. I'll remember remember who you were and how we've both changed and stayed the same. I've never had more respect for life and living that I have right now. Maybe it takes a near death experience to fee alive. Thanks. To my mother, you raised me strong. I know I'm only because you were first....So thank you...all of you. For everything good.I feel like a free man...If I listen closely, I can hear the sky falling too.

That was nice. Hopefully you can read it. If not, zoom in to make it bigger or click here. It was a really powerful read. I knew it. To all of the naysayers and the people that didn't believe my story yesterday, this is the proof that you waited for. I guess you had to see it for your own eyes. This was tweeted by Frank Ocean himself and signed by him.

He's declared his bisexuality and is not ashamed of it. He's very much proud of it and is so happy how his life is now because of it. I wonder who this person was? I wonder if they are still friends? What if it's someone in the industry? There  are sooo many questions that I could ask about this.

I wonder if this will make any other males in the industry come out? Only time will tell. Now, I'm just waiting to see how the rest of the world will react in the morning when they wake up to see that this man has confirmed his sexual orientation. Will and how will this affect his career? Will it have a positive or negative impact being that this man is into hip-hop?

This letter was penned back in December. He planned out opening up to the public about his love life. He wrote it in the songs. He knew what he was doing. The question is will it hurt his sales and make him lose supporters or by him coming out do you think the gays will support him and increase his sales?

I'll keep you posted. But to Mr. Ocean, I would like to say that I'm very proud for what you've done and I wish you nothing but the best and all of the success with this new album. You are a strong and intelligent individual and no one can take that away from you. You are also very brave for doing this and you have all of my support.. Take care.
