From the beginning you knew
You knew you were different
From almost all the other people
And it wasn’t until you saw what was possible
What you could do
That it was possible
You found your will
Will to be who you are
The you others didn’t want to or couldn’t see
And like starlight from suns so far way in time
Traveling through dusty nebulae
You alighted upon the Earth
Revealing the humanity you hid from darkness
Becoming one more shooting star
For others to wish upon
And guide the way
