Short story: Michael and Bob!

Updated on February 5, 2012

Man in the Mirror!

If this is not sufficient for a hub , I will turn it into a poem!


As I watched him and allowed the tears that had gathered for so many years now, but I was a tough kid , believed to be tiougher if I held my emotions in check. From that day I learned things from him and from the experience, that will be with me to the day I die and even beyond. So as those tears kept streaming down my face, not really know what I was crying for ,inside I felt, and it was for me, one of his very best performance that I had ever witnesses.

Before this proformance I was riding high on Motown 25 when the moon walk and his overall showmanship bought it to where I absolutely blew the lid of the place I was living at that time, the neighbors came and asked if all was well. But it was this performance which was able took me to that place I had never been before and took me back to never be the same again. I now truly understand all the true feeling of those I hold special like himself and Robert Nestor Marley, from listening to songs like “Ben” and “I’ll be there” in the earlier times and Man to man from Bob Marley. It was since my days as a kid many years ago, I knew that I will be a loyal fan, and admirer. This have never changed I predicted many things with both these humans as I did with myself, of which I will be forever proud!

My tribute and honor to them both!

Hope you will also feel what I have so very long ago , I know they had their work to do as we all have ours!

Give thanks and praises!

      Thank you Frank my brethren . These two humans that passed here real quick ! I was angry at Marley for dying before he spoke to me in a more simplified term , but grew to understand.

      Because I was much younger , so if you can feel my youth you may understand .

      But with Michael those who heard the things I was saying for years among those I called acquaintance and friends

      They will say to you he knew something.

      I knew he would not stay here , can't say more but I prayed for him.

      In your like you must have people like there , to help show you the spirit that it takes to travel beyond simplicity to the complex world of being iconic , but fight that great battle of maintenance with simplicity, after a while money means nothing, it's your sanity , of being in constant demand.

      Imagine a world needing you more than understanding you for the good you bring to them.

      Stay grounded brethren. But touch the stars , only you will know yours.

      If it's something more than money , you are loose , because the money must come.
