Child, if you leave me, you should know that the world is cruel.
You will come back running to your mama just like before.
Come back to me before I am nevermore.
Stay by my side and abide by my rule.
After all, you will always be my crowning jewel.
If you leave, I may not be here anymore.
Please do not fight and make this a chore.
You may think you are all grown, but you only finished high school.
The world is calling to me, mama I must go.
I want to make a difference and there is a lot to do.
There is a lot out there that I would like to know
And you may not believe me, but I grew.
Mama, I know that it’s not always safe but I cannot always follow.
It is about time that I left the nest and flew.
