    Tribute to a legend

    I pay tribute to a fallen star
    Who had his dreams fulfilled?
    Before he knew what dreams were

    I watch him dance, hear him sing
    Yet my focus is drawn to his eyes
    Where lonely questions are beckoning

    That feeling mirrored in child’s eyes
    Not fitting in, not understanding why
    Begging for answers his soul cries

    “You are not alone” stilled my heart
    Never singing I nor we within the lines
    Of acceptance he would never be part

    The King of Pop revered, befriended
    One of the loneliest souls I’ve ever seen
    Hoping he found peace as life ended

    His music changed the world’s beat
    His dancing was like nothing ever before
    Performing was when he felt complete

    I shed tears for a legend so loved, so lost
    Wondering for years if he’d ever fit in
    Never understanding gains and costs

    For the artist who inspired passion
    For the inner child who craved acceptance
    For the creative genius who defied expectation

    For a legend who will never be forgoten

    Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.

    Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) Greek philosopher.
