TRIBUTE TO MICHAEL JACKSON: ENIGMA

TRIBUTE TO MICHAEL JACKSON: ENIGMA

Michael Joseph Jackson Greatness

Yes! “Greatness” should be part of the names of such a phenomenal human

From a working-class family to unequalled riches

Loved by many

Powerful energy and great charisma were few of his qualities that stood out

Performances that brought the world to a standstill

His unique fashion style stood out

He was born of Art!

An entertainer extraordinaire, master of his craft

Arguably the greatest showman that has ever graced the planet Earth!

Michael had the black race all over the world wallowing in pride

Through his music, he preached the co-existence of cultures and humanity

Just like we all, he was subject to the same laws of life

Pain, age, confusion and fear

A man with an extraordinary gift became a man with burden

But, unlike the rags to riches tales of Hollywood, Michael never finds absolution

The banality of his demise is striking

Controversies made up the life and time of this Enigma

Despite rumours, he loved his black skin colour

To a majority of the black crowd at Harlem, he said “I know my race. I just looked in the mirror, I know am black”

No matter the controversies, we knew the struggle and the pain that made him so

We knew the disgusting mid-century racism.

On the 25th of June, we lost an Enigma

We lost the greatest showman

We lost King of Pop

Till today we are still crying for the inevitable loss of our childhoods.
