As time passes, with every word spoken, and every broken heart you learn the difference between a helping hand and breaking ones spirit. Dependence isn't found in love, and crowds don't mean security. Full of grace, and eyes forward you swallow the grief knowing that embraces aren't eternal, passion does not bring promises. Learning to build your foundation on the right now because the ground of tomorrow is not certain and dreams have a way of crashing. With each passing moment you learn that even the sunshine rays burn if you lay there too long. So planting your own seeds to bloom in your soul without waiting for someone to bring you flowers that wilt and you learn. You learn you are strong. You learn how to push forward. With every disappointment, with every judgment passed you learn you are enough, you are worthy and your fire continues to burn and time continues to pass.
