After a While!

September 4, 2012

 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 learning
And company doesn’t mean security,
And you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts
And presents aren’t promises,
And you begin to accept your defeats
With your head up and your eyes open,
With the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child,
And learn to build all your roads on today
Bacause tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans,
And futures have a way of falling down in midflight
And after a while, you learn
That even sunshine burns if you get too much.
So you plant your own guarden 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.

– Veronica A. Shoffstall
