The passing of a legend
I’m at a loss for words today; this doesn’t even seem real.
Michael Jackson, music legend, dancing phenomenon and fashion icon (say what you will he brought military style to the masses) has passed beyond our reach.
Michael was voted number 31 of the most influential people in fashion ( including designers etc)no mean feat for a recording artist.
This post is disjointed as I feel as though I have lost someone dear to me - all my life he has been there to inspire me and renew me when I felt jaded.
His passion for making the world a better place made me strive to be a better person.
I woke up today with 'Man in the mirror' in my head and I hope that with his passing the message Michael tried to spread gains momentum
They could never understand
what you set out to do
instead they chose to ridicule you
when you got weak
they loved the sight
of your dimming
and flickering starlight
How could they understand what was so intricate
To be loved by so many, so intimate
they wanted to see your lifeless corpse
this way you could not alter the course
of ignorance that they have set
To make my people forget
what they have done for much too long
To just forget and carry on
I had loved you forever because of who you are
and now I mourn our fallen star

R.I.P Michael you brought sunshine into so many lives, even while you lived through some dark, dark days. I pray that you find peace and happiness.
