A child without a childhood

Have you seen my Childhood?
I'm searching for the world that I come from
'Cause I've been looking around
In the lost and found of my heart...
No one understands me
They view it as such strange eccentricities...
'Cause I keep kidding around
Like a child, but pardon me...

People say I'm not okay
'Cause I love such elementary things...
It's been my fate to compensate,
for the Childhood
I've never known...

Have you seen my Childhood?
I'm searching for that wonder in my youth
Like pirates in adventurous dreams,
Of conquest and kings on the throne...

Before you judge me, try hard to love me,
Look within your heart then ask,
Have you seen my Childhood?

- Michael Jackson

Great job! I don't understand what Michael Jackson has to do with anything though.

It appears fairly obvious that this is a compassionate attempt to educe the modus operand of a tortured psyche, one who's childhood was tainted by abuse, pain, and responsibility no young person could survive without creating devices to compensate... Specifically- Jackson.
