Praying for Paris

Michael Jackson’s little girl is in big trouble

Transparent eyes cannot disguise
young Paris’ inner ache.
When Michael died his princess cried.
She thought her heart would break.

For four long years she hid her tears
while flashing us a smile.
But masks can’t hide what bleeds inside
or cover up its guile.

Grief’s haunting ghosts if left to boast
can lead to suicide.
But gratefully she lived to see
she failed (although she tried).

Lord, save this child by life defiled
and drown her wish to die.
May Paris find Your heart is kind
with love that never lies.
