Today was my niece's graduation from High School. Me, Jazz and my Twin were out celebrating when a guy with his two kids came up to us. Told us Michael Jackson is dead. We were like what? We couldn't believe it. He showed us a text from his friend telling him about Michael and Farrah. Two talented souls gone on the same day.
Now, I'm home. About to go to bed. I'm sitting here still stunned. Michael Jackson is gone.
When I was little girl, I wanted to marry Michael Jackson. I loved him with his beautiful brown skin, full black nose and beautiful voice. Though he changed the way he looked over the years and his life at times got crazy, there was always the music. All that lovely, funky, soulful and heartfelt music.
You may be gone, Michael. I'm thankful for all the music and memories you have given to all of us. You will live in on in your so many songs: Got To Be There, ABC, Don't Stop Till You Get Enough, Beat it, Lady of my life, She's out of My Life, Human Nature, Wanna be Startin' Something, Bad, Liberian Girl, Man in The Mirror, Dirty Diana, Do you Remember The Time, Butterflies, Break of Dawn.
I wish I could express more on how I feel. All I can say is I will miss you.
