After a while you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul and you learn that love doesn t mean leaning ,and company doesn t always mean security.
And you 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 ahead ,with the grace of a woman , not the grief of a child.
And you plan to build all your roads for today ,because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans ,and the future has a way of falling down in mid flight.
After a while you understand that even sunshine burns if you get too much.
So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul ,instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
And you learn to endure, to get stronger.
You learn what you’re worth, and you learn, you learn, with every goodbye ,you learn even more.
Don’t wander away from yourself, just to get close to someone else.
