10 years. i hope for one you make it through nursing, maybe even fulfill a graduate degree. i hope you finally learn to love yourself the way you always needed to. i hope mom figures herself out, i hope she makes it to my wedding. i hope you learn the meaning of true gratitude and lose all sense of an ego. i hope my brother gets help for his mental illnesses, finds the love of his life and truly knows how important he is. i hope your other brother stops the drugs before losing his freedom and dignity. i hope dad remembers me <\3. i hope he is accepting of the woman i will become. even if he isnt there physically, i hope his spirit sticks around for me. i hope to make amends with anyone i’ve done wrong. i hope i hope hope.
