R.I.P Michael Jackson

I KNOW THIS IS A FEW DAYS LATE CAUSE I WAS HAVING COMPUTER TROUBLE BUT R.I.P MICHAEL JACKSON YOU WILL ALWAYS BE THE GREATEST. I STILL CAN'T BELIEVE THAT HE IS GONE CAUSE HIS DEATH WAS SO SUDDEN AND HE HAD SUCH AN IMPACT ON MY LIFE. EVEN THOUGH I WAS BORN YEARS AFTER HIS STARDOM TO FAME I STILL GREW UP LISTENING TO HIS MUSIC THANKS TO MY GRANDMOTHER AND MY MOTHER. ALL OF YOUR SONGS EVEN WITH THE JACKSON FIVE WERE ALL HITS EVEN IF THEY WERENT NUMBER ONE. I REMEMBER SPENDING HOURS AS A LIL KID TRYING TO DANCE LIKE HIM AND DO THE MOON WALK. NO MATTER WHAT PEOPLE SAID ABOUT HIM NO ONE COULD DENY THAT HE WAS THE GREATEST ARTIST THAT EVER LIVED. HE WAS NOT JUST THE KING OF POP BUT HE WAS THE KING OF EVERY GENRE OF MUSIC THAT HE EVER VENTURED IN. I WILL ALWAYS TRULY MISS HIM AND REGRET THAT HE WASN'T ABLE TO DO HIS LAST CONCERT OR CD. NO MATTER WHAT HIS LEGACY WILL LIVE ON FOREVER.

~ANGEL FROM HEAVEN

GOD SENT ME AN ANGEL FROM ABOVE TO COMFORT ME WITH HAPPINESS AND TO SHOWER ME WITH LOVE.
THIS ANGEL OF MINE IS THE ONE I ADORE.
I KNOW THAT IF HE LEAVES ME MY HEART WILL BE TORN.
HE IS THE MOON, THE STARS, AND THE SUN.
BEING WITH HIM IS ALWAYS FUN.
HE BRINGS ME MANY EMOTIONS LIKE HAPPINESS, SADNESS, AND DEVOTION.
THIS ANGEL IS SPECIAL.
HE IS ONE OF A KIND.
FOR ME NOT TO SEE THIS I WOULD HAVE TO BE BLIND.
HE IS ALWAYS THERE FOR ME AND HE'S GIVEN ME LOVE TIMES TWENTY.
I JUST WANT TO THANK GOD FOR THIS ANGEL FROM HEAVEN.

SOUL MATE

MY BABY IS MY SOUL MATE AND IM GLAD IT'S HIM.**
JUST TO IMAGINE HIM IN MY MIND GETS ME SO HIGH.
IT'S LIKE I'M IN A WORLD WHERE ONLY ME AND HIM EXIST.
WHERE NO ONE CAN HURT US OR COME BETWEEN US.
MY HEART IS HIS HEART.
I GAVE HIM MY HEART BECAUSE I KNOW WITH HIM IT WILL NEVER GET BROKEN.
I KNOW MY BABY IS MY SOUL MATE CAUSE IF ANYTHING HAPPENED TO TO HIM I WOULD FEEL HIS PAIN.
WITHOUT HIM IT WOULD FELL LIKE MY OTHER HALF IS MISSING.
HE SETS MY SOUL AND SPIRIT FREE BY THE LOVE AND CARENESS I FEEL FROM HIM.
MY BABY IS MY SOULMATE AND IM GLAD IT'S HIM.

** THE BOY THAT THIS POEM WAS WRITTEN FOR IS NO LONGER IN MY LIFE. HE WAS MY FIRST HEART BREAK AND I AM CURRENTLY SINGLE.

~PAIN~

THE PAIN I FEEL INSIDE IS TEARING ME APART.
I HAVE SO MANY PEOPLE TO BLAME YET I CAN'T BLAME ANY.
IS IT THEIR FAULT THAT I KEEP STUFF DEEP DOWN INSIDE.
IS IT THEIR FAULT THAT WHEN THEY ASK WHAT'S WRONG I JUST SHAKE MY HEAD AND SAY NOTHING.
MAYBE I NEED HELP FOR THE PAIN INSIDE BUT I MIGHT JUST BLAME THEM FOR MAKING ME WORST.
THIS PAIN IS GETTING TO ME.
IT'S SQUEEZING MY LUNGS, NUMBING MY LEGS, AND FREEZING MY BRAIN.
I HAVE SO MANY PEOPLE TO BLAME FOR MY PAIN YET I CAN'T BLAME ANY

POETRY

I REALLY LOVE WRITING POETRY AND EVERYONE I KNOW ALWAYS TELLS ME THAT MY POEMS ARE GOOD BUT I DON'T THINK THEIR GOOD ENOUGH. I DON'T REALLY LIKE LETTING PEOPLE READ THEM BECAUSE IM SCARED THAT THEIR GONNA SAY THAT ALL OF MY WORK IS GARBAGE. I JUST REALIZE THAT IF I WANT TO BE A SUCCESSFUL WRITER I HAVE TO GET FEEDBACK ON MY WORK AND NOT BE AFRAID TO SHOW IT OFF. BECAUSE OF THAT STARTING TOMORROW IM GONNA PUT AT LEAST ONE OF MY POEMS UP HERE TO BREAK OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE
