You Learn

You 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 possession
and company doesn’t 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 an adult not the grief of a child.
And you learn to build your roads today
because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans
and futures have ways of falling down in mid-flight.
After awhile 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…

    Have met up with a few bloggers from Bangalore. Weekend was enjoyed with the team at a hill station called Coorg about 6 hours leisurely drive from Bangalore.

    How’d ur weekend go? Running again?

  15. sillygloop says:

    It’s indeed nice to put a face to a blogger and make a better connect than simply an online one. There are risks of course when we meet someone who we only know from their online activities, but with cautious selection of meeting venues and verification of certain facts, it is a nice friendship waiting to happen especially if you share common interests. Will put a blog post up on that visit..nice pics are promised 🙂

    Hi M,I have to comment on your courage… If I were you I would have never passed a monitor 🙂 even a frog or a lizard 🙂 are you sure those were lizards in your room? or geckos? oh god, I will never sleep in a same room with lizards.. i like them very much but i have some phobia for them …Have a beautiful dayCha

    Nice entry, Sweeti. Everyday is a learning experience.Take care!

  18. Ruma says:

    Hi Sweeti, I just read through your comments. It is very very unfair and unjust to have criminals walk free, after paying a small amount of money. I don’t know what is happening to the world. There seems to be no logic in anything whatsoever.Thankyou Sweeti.Love, Ruma.
