while you learn the subtle difference
holding a hand and chaining a soul.
that love doesn't always mean leaning,
doesn't always mean security.
begin to learn that kisses aren't contracts,
to accept your defeats,
head up and your eyes ahead,
grace of a woman, not the grief of a child.
to build all your roads on today,
tomorrow's ground is too uncertain for plans,
have a way of falling down in mid-flight.
while you learn that even sunshine burns
get too much
plant your own garden and decorate your own soul,
of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
that you really can endure,
really are strong,
really do have worth.
and you learn,
goodbye you learn.......
