Words of Wisdom

Today i am going to leave you a poem written by Veronica Shoffstall which was written in 1971, a time when so much was changing for woman but its words are still relevant today to us all........

After a while you learn the subtle difference
between holding a hand and chaining a soul
And you learn that love 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 really are strong
And you really do have worth
And you learn and you learn
With each goodbye you learn.....
