I will not live an unlived life.
I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire.
I choose to inhabit my days,
and allow my living to open me,
To make me less afraid, more accessible,
I loosen my heart
until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise.
I choose to risk my significance;
In order to live,
So that which came to me as seed
goes to the next as a blossom,
and that which came to me as a blossom,
goes on as fruit for all people.
