After A While You Learn….

EPISODE #4

“So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul” this sentence stood out to me like it was coming off of the page. Wow! How have I never heard this incredible poem written by Veronica A. Shoffstall: After A While. Afterall, it was written the year I was born (LOL, guess I’m giving my age out!)

I wanted to share this beautiful poem with you today:

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 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
you really are strong
you really do have worth
and you learn
and you learn
with every goodbye, you learn… 

I had a lot to say about this poem! LISTEN TO THE FULL MESSAGE HERE.
