I WISH

I know it's just turned December but I'm already reflecting.
  1. Not for a year that's better, or brighter.
  2. Because that's not something I can necessarily control.
  3. Shit can and will happen.
  4. People will leave.
  5. Friendships will end.
  6. Depression may linger well into the new year.
  7. What I wish for is the ability to cope, to spread love instead of hate, and to be surrounded by people who make even the darkest times light.
  8. And for each and every one of you to have that, too.
