My "Michael Jackson" Ditty

Updated: Feb 7

I loved his music though not a devotee to any particular musician. I was struck by the movie that was out quite briefly at the movie houses outlining the tremendous effort going into the tour he was putting together to ‘save the planet’ just before he died. I realized in that moment just how spiritual his soul is, regardless of all his arrested ‘childlike archetypes’ in his personality.

So I downloaded the album from this movie to my iTunes.
, that includes his reading of his poem that he wrote:"Planet Earth", the works of which are posted below here. One sunny day my kid and I are driving back into the city and we have this album on. The lyrics inspire me (Beat It, perhaps, but more likely the gorgeous lyrics of “ We are not Alone”. Or, perhaps- “This Is It”). 

I turn to my daughter…”——, I have had it with the darkness here.” Are you ready to confront it? …Big Smile. “Ok, let’s go”. 

I call out to the darkness…”COME ON, COME ON. SHOW YOURSELF.“ as I wave my hands in a ‘come to me’ motion. 
And the dark clouds start to come up massively on the horizon. I encourage it to keep coming. I am pissed! As M.J.’s music is blaring…in the background.

 Then, off to my left, I see Black Knights rising from their gravesites. “No, no” I say…”Only Light here”. Then, I think, WTH do I know? ”OK, Come on”.

 Then, off to my left, more-my White Knight who currently rides in the inner worlds, comes with a league of White Knights.



Then, again, off to my left, comes thousands and thousands of Lemurians.

 “Ok then”… I say to the Dark…”Now What!! “My kid has a broad grin. 

The Dark quickly recedes out of sight. 

“Wow, how cool is this” …I say to my child. The power of one (or in this case, two). My takeaway from that powerful and singular experience is that we each hold within us huge personal power with all of our soul to confront the dark, and help comes. 

It is there for each human spirit.

Planet Earth- Michael Jackson

"Planet Earth, my home, my place 

A capricious anomaly in the sea of space 

Planet Earth are you just Floating by, a cloud of dust 

A minor globe, about to bust 

A piece of metal bound to rust 

A speck of matter in a mindless void 

A lonely spaceship, a large asteroid 

Cold as a rock without a hue 

Held together with a bit of glue 

Something tells me this isn't true 

You are my sweetheart, soft and blue 

Do you care, have you a part 

In the deepest emotions of my own heart 

Tender with breezes caressing and whole 

Alive with music, haunting my soul In my veins 

I've felt the mystery 

Of corridors of time, books of history 

Life songs of ages throbbing in my blood 

Have danced the rhythm of the tide and flood 

Your misty clouds, your electric storm

Were turbulent tempests in my own form 

I've licked the salt, the bitter, the sweet 

Of every encounter, of passion, of heat 

Your riotous color, your fragrance, your taste 

Have thrilled my senses beyond all haste

In your beauty, I've known the how 

Of timeless bliss, this moment of now 

Planet Earth, are you just 

Floating by, a cloud of dust 

A minor globe, about to bust 

A piece of metal bound to rust 

A speck of matter in a mindless void 

A lonely spaceship, a large asteroid 

Cold as a rock without a hue 

Held together with a bit of glue 

Something tells me this isn't true 

You are my sweetheart, gentle and blue 

Do you care, have you a part 

In the deepest emotions of my own heart 

Tender with breezes caressing and whole 

Alive with music, haunting my soul

Planet Earth, gentle and blue 

With all my heart, I love you."
