I thought it was time for a thread like this!

Adam - you are doing an amazing job on this very long and grueling tour! You have been delightful in all your interviews and meet and greet! I can't even imagine how completely beat you must be!

I so look forward to your awesome new CD - no matter when it comes out!

I love that you are true to yourself!

I love that you are breaking ground!

I love your positivity!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I LOVE that you are slaying the fans overseas, from Australia to Germany and points in between, and gaining many new fans along the way!

I love that you always give 100% to the audience, no matter how tired you are or how bored you are with singing the same songs almost every night...for months on end.

This was written by a man who endured the most horrid, abusive childhood and left scarred physically and mentally. He's very talented and writes the most searing poetry. It breaks my heart. I hope Adam gets a chance to read this letter. A bit difficult to decipher but well worth the read. Adam touches the lives of so many people.♥

For Those Without a Voice
An Open Letter to Adam Lambert
By W.R.R.

A million voices are offered up to ya anytime ya speak & I know ya wonít see my words whispered back to ya amidst the flood. It makes me timid, makes me think my words arenít worth notice, & then the thought creeps in ďIím not worth it.Ē This is a learned response, taught by an abusive father. What I wanna say to ya, some of itís ugly, but itís my ugliness, my perception. So let me say at the outset that there is no blame here, nothiní ya need to do; itís more for me. Sometimes the words, the emotions, have gotta come out or theyíll tear yer spirit. I know ya know what I mean. Ya once told yer vocal coach ya needed to sing yer pain for her, so will ya let me?

Metaphor mocks me. I canít sing, some days I can barely speak due to serious injury at four years old, at the hand of a man society tells me was a monster. I canít think that way; as a child he was all I knew, so Iíll just say, please forgive me that I canít use music to soften this, or speech to make it less stark.

My family loves ya, but at first ya frightened me for several reasons. There are similarities ya see, between my father & my muse. Ya donít really look like him, itís a black hair, blue eyes, cheekbones thing Ė height, power of presence, confidence, spiked humor. The first time I was shown a video of ya prowliní around a stage like a predator, I felt an irrational dread. A chokiní, sinkiní fear fills my mouth, throatÖ my mind. My friend asked later why I didnít just ask someone to turn it off, but she canít understand - no one can if they havenít been there, endured abuse like that. Yer not allowed to look away unless yer told. It was like a trance that made the past rise up & take me over, part of me waitiní for ya to bark an order, to demand that I submit & accept whatever ya wanted from me. Ya never spoke, of course, & the strange feeliní faded, left me trembliní in its wake.

Bravado, pure lyiní foolishness, helped me hide my pain & fear. I told my family of friends that I didnít care for ya. ďNice voice, sure, but not attracted,Ē & other lies. The man Iíve struggled to become outta the shell-shocked ruins of the child I was canít afford to admit the truth bout some things. Fear waits there if ya do, & harm follows fear.

Yer voice tormented me. It was too like that other voice, lilted & beautiful, assured & magnificent. Yer face shamed me, ethereal beauty like his, unmarked, perfect; yer body like a liviní statue. Did ya know men that look like that were carved in stone in the ancient world & set on real pedestals to give their people somethiní they could dare to look at & live?

Iím a man of ragged spirit, scars, missiní pieces & tatters of flesh left to heal at last when the game of my childhood was over. Monocular vision is barely enough to take in yer beauty, endurin' the twist in my gut at the sight of the light glowiní in yer perfect eyes, as blue as his.

This is not to cry out horrors like a wounded Greek chorus, or to imply any resentment for the good fortune ya have in both family & life. I just wanna help ya understand how it feels now, to look at ya, & feel like Iím not worthy to tell ya how I feel.

What changed? Heariní yer voice sing of it beiní okay to shatter, that ya would be a safe place to break open & be afraid, that no harm would come. I was bout to give up after violence done to me brought my past back up to choke me like bile of the mind, scars on the soul. Yer voice stopped me, soothed, made me feel safe in the midst of feeliní broken. Yer voice told me I could break, & mend, & it didnít have to be the end of me. I know I have a long road ahead of learniní how to heal from my past; itíll probly take my whole lifetime. Yet I have an amazin' example now, showin' me how to keep fightin', as well as how to be vulnerable when I need to, without riskin' everythin'.

I guess I coulda boiled all this down to one word: thanks. Ya hear that so much, though, ya must. Not to diminish the word, but I wanted to melt the blockage of fear that chokes me whenever I think of speakiní to ya; I wanted to try to explain. Itís all mute, though, in the end; the fear is so strong - & I know I'm not the only one whose tongue turns to clay sometimes. So Iíll just tell ya this Ė ya saved a lot of us. Either by the beauty of yer voice, yer spirit, or both - ya saved us by giviní us hope, a positive example, & a foreign but vital taste of joy.

Odd thing is, I have no idea how to end this except by usiní that one word. Maybe now it has a little more weight? No less heartfelt, with or without that. Thanks, Adam; even though I pale at the thought of ever faciní ya, I can admire ya from a distance & try to support what yer doiní as best I can. Why? Because what yer doiní reaches people, gives Ďem hope & joy, just by beiní the man ya are todayÖ & the man yer gonna become tomorrow.
