After a while

After a while you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand & changing a soul.

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

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

And you begin to accept your defeats with your head up & your eyes ahead...

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

So you plant your own garden instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.

And you learn that you really can endure, that you really are strong.
