We Had Him
Trying to watch videos to go back in time makes us realize that we had him. We had the man, the genius, the perfection, the magic but we never realized it until we lost him. The world gave their backs to him whenever he needed us the most. We were never there for him but he was always there for us. He thought us what a true humanitarian is and with love he healed the ill kids. He was mostly judged because of that though. People never understood the point of his dream they were so blinded by the media that they never understood what he wanted to do. Heal the world was his main goal all he wanted to do was to make this world a better place, not just for him but for the entire human race. He did everything a man can do, even though at some point the world was against him he never gave up, he kept fighting for what he wanted…for what he believed.
Although as his career grew stronger through out the years the media started to create rumors…lies about him with the only goal of making money in their heads. The media manipulated the public and every single situation Michael was in, making it seem either weird or BAD when what he did was simply something a normal person would do but wait a minute it’s “Michael”. To them “Michael Jackson” means lots of sales, lots of money. The media’s influence in people has become bigger and bigger everyday to a point where people hate him but surely the amount of people that love and respect him is even greater. The only people who hate him are the ones that never look past what’s in front of them, they never gave him the chance to explain what was going on because once again they were being manipulated by the media. They were so blind that never realized that he was being hurt. They forgot that he had a heart…they forgot that he had feelings. But the media never stopped they kept going and going and ‘till this day they keep talking about him even though he is dead.
Michael Jackson before being the “King Of Pop” which in my opinion is a very small title for him was a father of three beautiful children, a son, a brother, a cousin, an uncle, and a friend. Besides everything else he was a human. He was a person seeking to be loved…to be understood. It only took a glance at his eyes to see how the man felt…to see who he really was. Those eyes said more than one thousand words. Looking through them you could see and feel his pain. Pain that tormented him for years since his childhood but as I said before he never gave up…he kept smiling even though the pain from his past was still present deep inside his heart. It was that smile and the children that kept him alive until June 25th when God decided he wanted him by his side. But I know that Michael still loves us all his family, friends, fans specially his children Prince, Paris, Blanket, and the children around the world.
To his family I would like to say that Michael Jackson didn’t live in vain. He changed the lives of many people including mine and we will never forget him…I will never forget him. I’m so glad that God gave me the chance to live the “Michael Jackson Era”. I can now tell my children if I ever have some all about this beautiful human being that Michael was and I know that I won’t be the only one doing this because there’s a lot of people out there that love him as much as I do. Once again thanks to Mrs. Katherine and Mr. Joe Jackson for giving life to what Michael Jackson was or should I say “is” because he will live forever in all of our hearts. I won’t break down into tears anymore for I know that “we are not alone” because stars always shine.
This Is NOT It Michael!
