I will not die an unlived life
I will not live in fear.
I choose to inhabit my days
To allow my living to open me
To make me less afraid,
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.
