I Will Not Die an Unlived Life — by Dawna Markova

Post any poetry here. It's just too hard to define "inspired" in this context, so we will settle for that which inspires.

I Will Not Die an Unlived Life: Reclaiming Purpose and Passion — by Dawna Markova

“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.”
