Decorate your soul

After a while you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul; and you learn that love doesn’t mean owning 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 defects with your head up and your eyes ahead with the grace of an adult, not the grief of a child.
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 else to bring you flowers.
You learn that you really can endure, that you are strong, that you do have worth, that you are beautiful.
