The 19-year-old may gave posted the most touching tribute of all as he shared a poem he had written about his father titled The Myth, The Legend, The Man.

He penned it under his legal name – Michael Jackson Jr. – as he said many touching things including: ‘The many know the Legend and the Myth, A lucky few know the man as he is But not as the Jackson family fifth.’

Prince goes on to say that a lucky few knew him as a son, brother and father.

The Myth, The Legend, The Man by Michael Jackson Jr. 

To many he is king, to me, a man

All he inspires, to lead a noble cause.

Everyone is family, not a fan

Even while receiving thunderous applause.

The many know the Legend and the Myth,

A lucky few know the Man as he is

But not as the Jackson family fifth.

‘Son, Brother, Father,’ these few know him as.

He is the Myth, the Legend

the Man.

He cares for his mother and his children,

The world and everyone, he is a lamb.

He is pure, tested, yet has forgiven.

He is the archangel known as Michael

He is with us and our tears we must stifle.
