I will not die an unlived life..

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 me,
to make me less afraid,
more accessible,
to loosen my heart,
until it becomes a wing,
a torch, a promise.

I choose to risk my significance;
to live so that which came to me as seed
goes to the next as blossom,
and that which came to me as blossom
goes on as fruit.

~ Donna Markova
