Michael Jackson

When I think about Michael, my eyes start to tear
He never learned to love, the man in the mirror

His gifts Thriller and Bad, made him the king of pop
A true innovator, creating the moon walk

That dirty Diana, never gave him a kiss
He was a smooth criminal, we were the witness

Loved by many millions, he lived behind his gate
Neverland his prison, prescription pills his fate

A life not fully lived,  too soon came to an end
He preferred fantasy, a strange world of pretend

He started to early, wanted to be a child
A part of him missing, his talking voice so mild

Still whenever he sang, he created fashion 
What could ever compare, with that kind of passion?

He continues to dance, an image on our screen
He was one of a kind, the best I've ever seen

    You like Michael Jackson??? When I was in high school in the US, everyone knew I was a Michael Jackson fan! I wore the pins and everything...hung the posters...the whole deal. Do you know his song Butterflies or...Whatever Happens? It just doesn't get better. BTW...your Canadian Bryan Adams is another fav of mine. He just speaks to my soul. Great write about Michael. :)

    Yes, there are just amazing persons who you never meet personally but touch you profoundly through their beings and works-- they are gems, and I think that Michael was one of them... so sad how his life turned out to be, but yes very grateful for the legacy he left-- thank you for your very kind comments, it was a pleasure to share that here. I liked how you incorporated titles and lines of his songs here...I have been playing around with the same idea too(not Michael's songs, but other artists)

    Awesome description Richard......

    a wonderful tribute for him here. I even heard on the news the other day that he died a virgin. It would not surprise me that Lisa Presley lied about that part of her life with him. One like Michael is not meant for our world of taboos. He was a very unique and gifted individual.

    I agree, he was a man child.
