when i grow up, im not going to be like my mom,
nor my dad,
nor anyone in my family.

when i grow up, im going to live as far away from everyone i once knew,
and only stay in touch with the people i loved most.

when i grow up, im not going to yell at my kids for their grades,
i will not yell at them for being themselves,
i will encourage them to make their own decisions.

when i grow up, im not going to be a pushover mom,
but im not going to hover over their lives
and make them uncomfortable.

when i grow up, im going to create an environment,
where they can come to me,
they can openly ask me anything,
and i wont get mad.

when i grow up, im going to be not only a mother,
but a friend.

when i grow up, my friends will replace my family.
my friends are and have always been,
my family,
better than my family.

when i grow up, im going to do everything in my will,
to be the opposite of my parents,
the opposite of my life now.
