    After awhile 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
    and you learn...

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
