The Ways of Learning

After a While 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 tomorrow’s ground is
Too uncertain for plans
And futures have a way
Of falling down in mid flight
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 are really strong
And you really do have worth
And you learn and you learn
With every good bye you learn.

Each step we take is another chance to be better, to be stronger, to do more and to learn what is truly meant for us. What is intended for you, is not what is intended for me and vice versa. When we know better, that's when we can do better. Life is for living, learning from our mistakes, and sharing the wisdom. At the end of the day and before the end of our life, hopefully, we will have stood for something. Go make some magic.
