Hey there Michael!
Sooooo... How does it feel being 53? Lolz. :]
I sang "Happy Birthday" to you when I came home from school today, after I randomly sang the national anthem and my state song. If you heard any of the songs before I sang "Happy Birthday" to you... I'm so sorry. Just Kidding! I know you wouldn't want me to say that. XD
For your birthday, Michael, I drew you a picture. It's of you holding 4 different balloons. One is a circle that says "Happy Birthday!", one is a heart, one is a smiley face, and the last is an odd almond shaped balloon with the number 53 on it. In the back, I drew the gates of Neverland the best I could, and I drew a globe being held by two different hands (one is black and the other white, like on the cover for Heal The World), and a peace sign, colored like the OLODUM peace sign from They Don't Care About Us. You have on what you would wear when performing Billie Jean, you know, your mother's sparkly jacket, your signature glove, a white V-Neck, and black pants. It was my first attempt at drawing some non-anime people, and I think it came out better than I thought. I wish to get the picture on here when I can, as the ones I drew for the 2nd anniversary of your Spiritual birth, but I'm unable to do so at the time. So I'll be real happy when I can show everyone what I drew for you.
I want to say "Thank You." for changing my life. Words can't begin to describe how much a part of my life you have become. Through all the good and bad times, I can look to you, and be motivated. It's like a magician, you know. They always entertain you with some of the best tricks, and you feel better. It's as if the magicial waved his wand and took the grief away. It's a wonderful feeling! But then, there are times when it must take more than that to patch up my shattered soul. I like to imagine you holding me, protecting me against every fear and degrading comment. My older brother seems to like to ridicule me and make mean jokes about you. It gets to me when I know it shouldn't but I really can't help it, you know, because he is my brother. He said things like "You're addicted with a dead man. Don't you find that odd? Strange? Obsessive?" and I said, "Nope. Not at all." and then he had some comment after that about and I couldn't take it anymore.
Birthday's are fun, don't you think so? I remember when you were on tour in... Denmark (?) and they brought out a big cake and everyone sang "Happy Birthday!" It put a smile on my face and I kept your smile in mind as I went through my day, sneaking moonwalks into my walking when I was in gym this afternoon.
Once again, HAPPY 53rd BIRTHDAY, MICHAEL! I <3 U!
With the love. L-O-V-E... <3
PS: You should've seen this coming... >;)
This is a rare pic I found on FanPop from the BAD Era. It's Michael wearing glasses. :3 <3 Doesn't he look adorable???
