A Lesson Not To Be Forgotten

by Veronica A.Shoffstall

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 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 ahead with the grace of a woman
not the grief of a child,
and you learn to build all your roads on today
because tomorrows ground is too uncertain for plans
and futures have a way of falling down in midflight
after a while 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 to bring you flowers
and you learn that you really can endure
that you really are strong
and you really do have worth
and you learn and you learn with every goodbye you learn
