after a while

After a while you learn from difference,

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 learn that kisses aren't contracts,

and presents aren't promises.

And you accept your defeats

with your head up and your eyes open,

with the grace of an adult,

not the grief of a child.

And you learn to build all your roads today

because tomorrow's ground

is too uncertain for plans.

After a while you learn that even sunshine burns

if you get too much.

So plant your own garden

and decorate your own soul

instead of waiting for someone

to bring you flowers,

And you learn that you really can endure,

that you really are strong,

and you really do have worth.
