After A While

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 wish i could work as hard as you. i'm so lagging behind EVERYTHING.stress stress stress. i wanna drop lit i tell you. maybe i'll just drop o levels too. AHHHHHHH.

sadly, I'm not studying very hard. I've decided not to do anything else except try to finish homework (which is unlikely) until school starts. until then, I'm slacking. suddenly I feel like just taking SEA history and not modern world cause I've forgotten everything. gahhh.

i have been trying to finish my homework. it's so gross. i'm supposed to have started studying for prelims okayyy. 9 subjects seems too much right now. i totally forgot abt bio.
