Michael Joseph Jackson Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Michael Joseph Jackson

Rating: 5.0


Glamour and the price of fame...
May produce a name.
Bright among rhinestoned stars.
In shallow glistening galaxies.

Entertained talents rise to heights.
To twinkle and dazzle for entire lifetimes.
With a climb that shines!
And can be difficult to maintain...
For those with gifts the envious wish to strip.

The burning fades as age appears.
And desires to remove any stains,
That may have shamed...
To rekindle and regain expectations.
Producing a familiar flame.
Hopeful to erase those degradations claimed.
Seem too exhausting,
To give and keep the same unchanged.

Deep feelings felt are not faked.
From an unhappiness that takes place...
Inside of the heart of the one who knows,
Fate awaits.
A closure comes and must be exposed.

As others patiently seek to leech and leave!
This one sees...
And it eventually shows!
To a public in deep sorrow.
An 'icon' has been divinely robed.

It eventually extinguishes,
The light that glows.
To forever be remembered,
For its authenticity.
And genuine heartfelt sensitivity.
This stays.
Not to go away,
From those memories blessed.


Dedicated in Loving Memory:
Michael Joseph Jackson
(1958-2009)

'Michael, you will always be loved.'
