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 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 grief of a child,

And you learn to build all your
roads on today because tommorrow's
ground is too uncertain
for plans.

After a while you learn that even
sunshine burns if 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 learn that you really can
endure...that you really are
strong,

And you reallly do have worth.
