I will not die an unlived life

print by BackyardPhoto on etsy

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.

Lovely, absolutely lovely and I completely agree/relate. It makes me want to have a dress up party with lots of wildly juicy and authentic women; dancing, playing, and having a great time! Wouldn't it be fun to go to a party where everybody could be as silly as they wanted to be? :D
