Message from Writer

You wish on that star all you want. But remember, that old star can only take you part of the way. You gotta help it get along with some hard work of your own.

My momma told me, 
all those years ago, 
that she didn't want me to end up like her.

My momma told me, 
all those years ago,
that she wanted a her children to be stars, 
to be able to be who they want to be,
to be able to learn what they want to learn about and about what they need to.

My momma told me, 
all those years ago,
she was a sad child, 
that she grew up alone and cold. 
She told me she might as well say she had no momma.
But that, as she told me, ain't true.

My momma told me, 
all those years ago,
she was abused as a teenager,
that she had to do things agaisnt her will.

Now, my momma can't tell me anything. 
Now, my momma is in a better place, 
where she isn't abused, cold and alone. 
Now, I'm the momma telling you.
I'm the one who gets to say 'I love you'
