R.I.P. Michael Jackson

Just a quick note about the passing of Michael Jackson. We all joked about him at one time or another but we all knew his incredible talents as well. Lately I’ve been thinking back through his life and realizing that his lack of a childhood was damaging to this man. Then I found the lyrics to his song “Childhood”. It’s as if he is speaking to us from the grave. Very sad.
I loved him as a performer. Here are the lyrics. Long live the king of pop.

“Childhood”

Have you seen my Childhood?
I’m searching for the world that I come from
‘Cause I’ve been looking around
In the lost and found of my heart…
No one understands me
They view it as such strange eccentricities…
‘Cause I keep kidding around
Like a child, but pardon me…

People say I’m not okay
‘Cause I love such elementary things…
It’s been my fate to compensate,
for the Childhood
I’ve never known…

Have you seen my Childhood?
I’m searching for that wonder in my youth
Like pirates in adventurous dreams,
Of conquest and kings on the throne…

Before you judge me, try hard to love me,
Look within your heart then ask,
Have you seen my Childhood?

People say I’m strange that way
‘Cause I love such elementary things,
It’s been my fate to compensate,
for the Childhood I’ve never known…

Have you seen my Childhood?
I’m searching for that wonder in my youth
Like fantastical stories to share
The dreams I would dare, watch me fly…

Before you judge me, try hard to love me.
The painful youth I’ve had

Have you seen my Childhood…
