Someday I'll be who I want to be.
Someday I'll be safe.
Someday I'll be away from self harm.
Someday I'll be truly happy.
Someday I won't be so hard on myself.
Someday I'll be able to completely read, write, and speak my native tongue again.
Someday I'll show my girl the world.
Someday I'll travel around the world.
Someday I'll graduate college.
Someday I'll marry my girl.
Someday I'll have a child who will never know the pain I've known.
Someday I'll see my big brothers again.
Someday I'll get to have my girl sleep in my arms every night.
Someday I'll have her name tattoo'd on my body.
Someday I'll be the person that everyone wants to know.
Someday I'll tell everyone my story to make them stronger.
Someday I'll tell my baby my story so she knows just how strong her mother is.
Someday I'll show my parents I'm not a screw up.
Someday I'll be able to be proud of myself.
Someday I'll be able to be confident in myself.
Someday I'll be able to look back at this and smile.
Someday I'll be the happiest woman on the planet.
Someday I'll finally show my girl just how much she's loved.
Someday I'll be able to live my life without restraint.
Someday I'll take my girl back to where I grew up.
Someday I'll get to go home.
Someday I'll be allowed to show my true feelings.
Today I'll love her with all my heart.
Today I'll work as hard as I can.
Today I'll hold my tongue.
Today I'll let my past gnaw at my consicious.
Today I'll cry every night.
Today I'll mourn those I've lost.
Today I'll miss my home.
Today I'll hold myself together because of insecurity.
Today I'll be scared of my parents.
Today I'll be too scared to sleep.
Today I'll skip a meal or two a day.
Today I'll fight to not lose control.
Today I'll try to not leave more scars on my marred body.
Today I'll hate myself more than anyone else could.
Today I'll lie about my feelings.
Today I'll breakdown.
Today I'll fight.
Today I'll cry.
