"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."
