After awhile, 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 mean security.
And you begin to understand that kisses arent' contracts and that presents aren't
promises. And you begin to accept your defeats with your head held high 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 and futures have a way
of falling down in mid-flight.
After awhile, you learn 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 else to
bring you flowers. And you learn that you really can endure, that you really are
strong. And that you really do have worth and that you keep learning. With every
good-bye you learn. --Author Unknown
