And then he was gone (apologies to "As Told By Ginger...")

"And (S)he was gone..."
by Ginger Foutely

He chose to walk alone,
Though others wondered why
Refused to look before him,
Kept eyes cast upwards,
Towards the sky.

He didn't have companions.
No need for earthly
Only wanted freedom,
From what he felt were
Puppet strings.

He longed to be a bird.
That he might fly away.
He pitied every blade of grass
For planted they would stay.

He longed to be a flame,
That brightly danced alone.
Felt jealous of the steam
That made the air its only home.

Some say he wished too hard.
Some say he wished too long.
But we awoke one summer day
To find that he was gone.

Some say he wished too hard.
Some say he wished too long.
But we awoke one summer day
To find that he was gone.

The trees, they say stood witness.
The sky refused to tell.
But someone who had seen it said,
"The story played out well."

He spread his arms out wide.
Breathed in the break of dawn.
He just let go of all he held...

... And then he was gone.

    Thank you. I wish it was mine but it's not. It's from the nicktoon classic, "As Told By Ginger". But it's still pretty relevant.

    I should've gotten this album while he was alive. I meant to, but I didn't.
  • Speechless Robby 2010/01/02 02:40:51

  • Robby Speechless 2010/01/02 09:35:20

    Although Michael was from a different era than I, I still appreciated all that he had created in his short time on earth. I too was a performer, though I never had the persuasion Michael Jackson enjoyed, nor do I think I could have handled the noteriety he enjoyed, but I did enjoy watching peoples reactions to each of his newest releases and the hype behind it. He was a King, not like Presley, but King to a different genre of music, but still a King in his own right.
