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
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.
