After awhile you learn the subtle differences
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 begin to accept your defeats
with your head up and your eyes open
with the grace of an adult not the the grief of a child.
And you learn to build your road on today
because tomorrow's ground is too uncertain for plans.
After awhile you learn even sunshine burns when 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 that you really can endure
that you really are strong and you really do have worth
