Plant your own Garden

Love yourself


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 aren't contracts and 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 and not the grief of a child. 
You learn to build your roads on today 
because tomorrows ground is too uncertain for plans
and futures have a way of falling down mid flight. 
After awhile you learn that even sunshine burns 
if you get too much 
so you plant your own garden and decorate your soul instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers
 and you learn that you really can endure, 
that you are strong and really do have worth 
and you learn and learn and you learn 
with every goodbye you learn
