After a while...


After a while

After a while you learn
the subtle differences
between holding a hand
and chaining a soul

and you lean that love
doesn't mean leaning
and company
doesn't always means security

And you begin
you begin to learn
that kisses aren't contracts
and presents aren't promises

And you begin to accep
your defeats with your head up
and your eyes ahead
with the grace of a man/woman not the grief of a child

And you learn
to build your roads on today
because tomorrow's ground is too uncertain
for plans and futures have a way of failing down
in mid-flight

After a while you learn
that even sunshine burns if you get too much
so you plant your own garden
and decorate your own soul
instead of waiting for someone
to bring you flowers

And you learn you really are strong
and you really do have worth
and you learn and you learn
with every good bye you learn
