I Hope

I hope for all your hush-hush aspirations and castles in the air, to come true one day, for the future that you put on stake with me shall come true, with the absence of myself.

I hope you come out of the pit of fruitless ways which you dig yourself.

I hope you maintain the radiance and light you gave to her, stolen from me.

I hope for you to see the side of yourself that I saw, raw and full of vibrancy, and make a diamond of it by carving out the mistakes and heating up with lessons.

I hope earnestly and truthfully to witness the smiles on faces of people around you as you finish climbing the ladder of triumph which you started climbing with me.

I hope

not for you to change yourself,

but to bring out the authenticity

of yourself and change the all and sundry.
