Billie Jean is waiting
February 22, 2011

I just found this video on YouTube today. Its called “Billie Jean is waiting” by Henry Gorman- a tribute to Michael Jackson.  Beautifully sung, every line made a tear fall from my eyes. Sometimes, I just feel like he’s still in the world. Sometimes, I feel like the burial never happened, like the day never came when I was too shocked to move when I heard the news. And sometimes, I wish it could stay that way. I wish that feeling could remain forever. Like he’s still in Neverland, playing with his children and telling them about the boy that never wanted to grow up. I remember watching the interview where Martin Bashir meets Michael Jackson- when he told him that he wanted to be like Peter Pan. And every single time I picture that scene in my mind- Michael climbing the tree….” I never want to grow up” .. “I want to be like Peter Pan”.. reality hits me hard. And sometimes even when I know that he’s no more, I feel happy for him. I feel happy because I guess he is in a much better place. I don’t know whether its heaven or its simply the place where one goes between two births. I couldn’t care less. I just know that its a much safer place than this world. No wars, hatred, violence. Its what he wanted the world to be like.

Now, when I listen to the song, I realize that he’s still here. I realize that he can never be gone. He can never be gone unless he’s forgotten. And that’s something that will never happen.

My Hero, My Inspiration
February 20, 2011

Like Michael Jackson, John F Kennedy, Tupac Shakur and many others, Martin Luther King Jr. is my hero. He has inspired millions of people around the world- not only Americans and Africans- but people all over the planet. Today, when I listen to his speeches on racism, love, hate and peace, it makes me feel sad. It makes me hate the world sometimes. It makes me think  “What is wrong with the world?” . It makes me think “Where is the love?” The world would be a better place if nobody hated. The world would be a better place if more people thought like him. The world would be a better place if there aren’t so many lies covering the truth. We live in challenging times. And it just isn’t a matter of who’s going to survive. Its the matter of who’s going to live. Sadly, not many people know the difference between surviving and living. I never could tell the difference between the both till a dew days ago. The moment I heard Martin Luther King Jr. say the words  “I have a dream”, I knew what I wanted from my Life. The real purpose of my Life may not be clear to me yet, but lets leave that to tomorrow. What I wanted from today, I knew. I said to myself  “I am going to live everyday. Not merely survive it”.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness. Only Light can do that.

Hate cannot drive out Hate. Only Love can do that.

-MLK JR.

Smile
February 20, 2011

Topic by Daily Post :

When I’m feeling down and sad, I always listen to Michael Jackson’s “Smile”. Hats off to Charles Chaplin for writing such a beautiful song. I can honestly say that this is one song that makes me smile and cry at the same time. Songs like these have become quite rare in the music industry these days. Apart from a few good artists, what we hear today is computerized, studio-magicked, artificial voice stuff that makes one wonder whether you’re hearing the artist or the computer speaking. Coming back to the song, it always reminds me that I have more reasons to smile than reasons I have to cry. And I think that very few songs have that impact on you. They speak straight to your soul.

Smile, though your heart is aching

Smile, even though its breaking

When there are clouds in the sky

You’ll get by

If you smile with your fear and sorrow

Smile, and maybe tomorrow

You’ll find that Life is still worthwhile

If you just smile..

Cry
February 1, 2011

Somebody shakes when the wind blows
Somebody’s missing a friend, hold on
Somebody’s lacking a hero
And they have not a clue when it’s all gonna end

Stories buried and untold
Someone is hiding the truth, hold on
When will this mystery unfold
And will the sun ever shine
In the blind man’s eyes when he cries?

People laugh when they’re feelin’ sad
Someone is taking a life, hold on
Respect to believe in your dreams
Tell me where were you
When your children cried last night?

Faces fill with madness
Miracles unheard of, hold on
Faith is found in the winds
All we have to do is reach for the truth

And when that flag blows
There’ll be no more wars
And when all calls
I will answer all your prayers,
Show the world

You can change the world
(I can’t do it by myself)
You can touch the sky
(Gonna take somebody’s help)
You’re the chosen one
(I’m gonna need some kind of sign)
All cry at same time tonight

Michael Jackson

HIStory
January 27, 2011

Topic #28 by Daily Post :

If I were stranded on a desert island and if I could bring only one music album with me, that would be HIStory by Michael Jackson. [Well, I guess the island has got some record player or something :P] The reason why this album is special to me, apart from the fact that I’m a hardcore Michael Jackson fan, is because you can feel  the emotion,  and the man himself speaking out to you. Its HIS Story. The album has two parts HIStory book 1 and book 2. Many of the chart-topping numbers are from HIStory itself. One particular song that I’d like to listen to while stranded on a desert island is “You are not alone”. Whenever I listen to the song, I can almost feel his presence. Its amazing how he never fails to take me to unknown worlds, its amazing how he never fails to make me smile and cry at the same time. You will be missed Michael. But not forgotten. If I ever journey out to an island, I’d better carry the album with me. I may need it if I’m stranded [XD].

 

R.I.P. Michael Jackson.

 

“In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope.

In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort.

In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream.

And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.”

Love is like a bar of soap
January 17, 2011

This is something I found on the official Michael Jackson site:

Love is a funny thing to describe. It’s so easy to feel and yet so slippery to talk about. It’s like a bar of soap in the bathtub – you have it in your hand until you hold on too tight.

Some people spend their lives looking for love outside themselves. They think they have to grasp it in order to have it. But love slips away like the wet bar of soap.

Holding on to love is not wrong, but you need to learn to hold it lightly, caressingly. Let it fly when it wants. When it’s allowed to be free, love is what makes life alive, joyful, and new. It’s the juice and enemy that motivates my music, my dancing, everything. As long as love is in your  heart, it’s everywhere.

-Michael Jackson

If I had a time machine
January 15, 2011

So this was the topic by http://dailypost.wordpress.com/

Topic #15:

Here’s today’s topic idea:

If you had a time machine that only let you spend one hour in a different time, what date would you go to?

Reminder: Do not answer this in the comments. That would be very silly. You should grab this topic and write a post about it on your blog.

_________________________________________

If I had an hour in an entirely different time, I’d go back to June 25th 2009, and spend that time with Michael Jackson.
