You Will Learn

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 aren’t contracts.
And presents aren’t promises …

After a while you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much.

So you plant your garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.

-Jorge Luis Borges “You Learn”
