After a while- a beautiful healing poem

Posted by Styling Souls Blog Administrator on February 3, 2011 at 6:43 AM

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 are not contracts

and present are not 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 your roads today because

Tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans

After a while

You learn that even the sunshine

Burns if you get too much

So plant your owngarden|

And decorate your own souls instead of

Waiting for someone to bring you flowers

And learn that youreally can endure….

That you really are strong….

And you really do have worth.
