    Poem Commentary

    an unfortunate ending for such a musical genius. kudos Michael,  rest in peace.

    Michael Jackson

    a genius on the stage in lights

    with costume on both day and night

    did never tell that things weren’t right

    a victim of that self fought fight.


    but conjured up a brighter life

    through songs and dance that hid his strife

    from face enhanced so none could tell

    each face was worn but worn not well.


    and carried round that burden so

    to find that most in fact did know

    confessed in truth he early fell

    to sentence served in Dante’s Hell.


    then lived a life of solitude

    from press and fans in multitudes

    to die at last from overdose

    when comeback was so ever close.


    a moral to this tale of woe

    is be yourself so all may know

    that what you get is what you see,

    for what you are was meant to be.

    I'm not now & never was a big admirer of Michael Jackson, but this poem is a masterpiece of compassionate understanding and poetic skill. I wish I'd written so wisely.

    A wonderful, truth filled and deserved trubute to the King of Pop. Whatever people accused him of , one thing is for sure the truth and that is he did so much good for people through his music and charities.

    Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.
