Begin To Learn

After a while
You learn the subtle difference
Between holding a hand
and chaining a soul
You learn that love doesn't mean leaning
And company doesn't mean security
You begin to learn
Kisses aren't contracts
And presents aren't promises
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
You learn to build your roads on today
Because tomorrow's ground
is too uncertain for plans
And futures have a way
of falling down in mid flight
In time you learn
even sunshine burns
if you get too much
So plant your own garden
Decorate your own soul
Instead of waiting for someone
to bring you flowers
then you learn you really can endure
That you really are strong
And you really do have worth
