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,
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.
Poem: Fully Alive by Dawna Markova
I've been cleaning out my inbox and found this poem that I sent myself 10 months ago so I could post it on my blog. I had long forgotten about it, but it touched me this morning as it did the first time I read it. I knew it had to be shared and hope it will touch you also.
What one thing can you do today to feel Fully Alive? To not die an unlived life?
