I will not die an unlived life.
I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire.
I choose to inhabit my days
To allow my living to open meTo make me less afraid, more accessible.
To loosen my heartUntil it becomesA wing, a torch, a promise.
I choose to risk my significance
To live so that which came to me as seedGoes to the next as blossom
And that which came to me as blossomGoes on as fruit.
