After A While

After a while, you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul. You learn that love doesn't mean leaning, company doesn't mean security, kisses aren't contracts and presents aren't promises.
You begin to accept your defects with your head up and your eyes open with grace. You learn to build all of your roads on today because tomorrow's ground is too uncertain for plans.
Futures have a way of falling down in mid flight and after a while you learn that even the sunshine burns if you obtain too much. So, you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.

After a while you learn that you really CAN endure; that you are very strong and have worth. Then as you live, you learn and learn....and grow....and learn some more....

With every hello and learn.
