After A While

After a while,
you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul.

And you learn that love doesn't mean leaning, and company doesn't mean security.

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

And you begin to accept your defeats with your head held high and your eyes open, with the grace of a women not the grief of a child.

Then you learn to build your roads on today, because tomorrows ground is too uncertain and futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight.

After a while,
you learn that even sunshine burns ... if you get to much.

So, you plant your own garden, and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone else to bring you flowers.

And you learn
that you can endure,
that you really are strong,
and that you really do have worth.

And you keep learning.

With every good-bye, you learn.
