FULLY  ALIVE

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 a blossom
and that which came to me as a blossom,
goes on as fruit.

Dawna Markova (20th century), USA
