Mama Never Told You

Chorus

Mama never told you

The day I came into the world

I wondered about the man I never knew

Ever since I was just a little girl

Mama never told you

But then somebody else did

I was ten and it was then, you knew

You had a kid


Verse 1

Mama never told you

But she told me about you

She said you were a fire fighter

One of the heroes, at ground zero

Then you left for war, didnt write her

Ten years later, someone asked, “Is she yours??”


Repeat Chorus 1×


Verse 2

Mama never told you

But now here you are

So much catchin’ up to do

Where on earth do we start

Mama never said a thing

Before you left for the war

But that doesn’t mean

A thing anymore


Repeat chorus 1×


It feels great

To have a dad

No, it’s not too late

To be my dad

Even though

Mama never told you

About me

Further Recommendations

Sarah Luongo: I'm a big fan of the format of the book- the concept of incorporating poems and within the story and sectioning off periods of the story with each poem. It made it easier to read, and made the unimaginable easier to comprehend. What some people may skip over may be the most important part in this...

anabanana0329: This book is great if u are interested in Greek mythology.This book is a good book to read.The chapters are very short.But they talk about side gods that aren't the main ones.Its really cool.And I love it very much.

Fabia Scali-Warner: Wow. This works reminds me of Allen Ginsberg, and at times even Prevert. The arching storyline is interesting, but I loved the care given to every verse. What a gem!

Terri: I love this story, the characters, and flow. I can’t wait for Lisa’s story, what happens with Adele. Will she get to stay? Can’t wait for next story.

brOKen_gurl_here: I loved this book so much! I would read it when I was feeling any emotion, I would read it when I was supposed to be sleeping, I read this book because it had me on a hook. I love this book!

Irene: I like the story plot..the characters itself and I love the author writing style...it suits me

Amanda Lynch: There are a couple loose ends that I feel should've been handled by now. Additionally, some of the time jumps don't make a lot of sense. What happened at Eric's birthday party? When did they let Tempo go? Why does she have such a weird name?

cathrine: Overall I liked the poem, it's style of sync and especially the emotions.

alicia: As always I love your books, just finished all your completed stories and I can say it made waking up today a lil bit more special. Thank you

heironymousridiculous: Do I love you more because one of your parents was a narcissist? Or was it always that crumpled, refracted, white trash inheritance besieging my negative attachments until I’d eaten up all my carefully rationed self-esteem? Of course I was insane with hunger. Of course you never meant to hurt me ...

Deleted User: I love the poems written in the book. Each poem is unique and emotional. The imagery of the poems caught my attention. I love the comparisons made. Would highly recommend everyone to read it.

laceyE56: It was a great book!!
