“Folks want to blame someone for gals like us. “Her daddy was unkind” or “some fella broke her heart”…
Hogwash. You and me’ve always been like this. Always a little removed. Always…
Of higher, further, faster…More. Always more.
We came into this world spittin’ mad, running full bore… To or from what, I ain’t never been able to tell.
Over the years, I’ve come to think of these traits as the shared attributes of a chosen people.
The lord put us here to punch holes in the sky.
And when a soul is born with that kind of purpose, it’ll damn sure find a way.
We’re gonna get where we’re going, you and me. Death and indignity be damned. We’ll get there, and we will be the stars we were always meant to be.”
