Michael Jackson - Poem by Ruby Mae Heard

Imagine if you had never been a kid
and were forced into everything you did

you never went out to play ball
in fact you never went out at all

By the time that you were ten
You were being written about by grown men

Michael I know that you have learned
That respect is not given its earned

And you will always have mine
Until the end of our time

    I kind of agree and disagree miss carter here. True he did have some cool music, but his moral value is a little off. But then again if he didn't get involved with the music i'm sure his moral value would be just fine. For him it's a no win situation, it's either fame and wierdness, or unnoticed and normal. I try to respect everyone.
    But for michael jackson i just feel sorry for him.

    just because I'm curious, what do you respect him for?
    Granted, the man's a musical icon, and he had some really tight music back in the day..but if you stripped him of his fame, would you still respect him for his moral value?

    No disrespect, just trying to figure this one out...
