Human Nature

My father told me that women change after marriage when I was a little boy. He said that they show the best of themselves beforehand. Everything they kept hidden comes out afterward. Single ladies tend to agree with this when I ask their thoughts. Married ladies tend to tell me that they were the same before and after the ceremony. I think what my father told me is true of both sexes in most cases. Sooner or later, what is hidden will surface. I will try not to repel you if I don’t want to lose you. We all feel this way at some point in our lives. It’s human nature. Hurt can make us feel otherwise. Michael Jackson’s Human Nature (1983) reminds me that I have always felt this way. I hope I always will.

Leave Me Alone

I am a true music lover. I have found good music in all genres. It has been harder to find in some of them. Contemporary pop music has challenged my patience. I like a handful of such songs. Leave Me Alone (1987), by Michael Jackson, is my favorite one. This song delivers substance in a quite powerful dose. Its official music video happens to be an imaginative masterpiece. I would have expected nothing less for a song of this caliber. I have regularly identified with the frustration that the lyrics express. Trials and tribulations are part of life. This songs helps me to release hurt. It also gives me joy. Joy is part of life too.

Friendship

Friendship is a unique kind of love. It can make you feel closer to a neighbor than you do to a sibling. I do not accept that this scenario indicates a breakdown in a family’s purpose or objectives. Familial roles do not dictate how close we will be with relatives. Friendship does. It liberates us from becoming confined to relationships based upon circumstance or socially accepted definitions. For many people, pets have taken the place of children. Friendship allows for such relationships to develop. A rat can be the best friend that a little boy ever had. Michael Jackson’s Ben (1972) is a captivating song about friendship that is very close to my heart. Its message is almost as beautiful as the enchanting voice that delivers it.

Fighting Back Tears

I remember the first time that I heard Michael Jackson’s Music And Me (1973). It was back in the days of the cassette from a Jackson 5 compilation. I was shocked that I had not encountered this masterpiece earlier on in life. This song is so beautiful that I fight back tears whenever it plays. Michael’s angelic voice, the melody, and the message produce a flawless treasure. Sometimes the tears form and flow. I’ll never get used to tears with my joy.
