"I will not die an unlived life" by Dawna Markova

Here is a gift for you: one of my favorite poems from one of my very favorite humans, Dawna Markova.

May all babies be born into loving hands...

Prayers of Invocation
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.

-Dawna Markova
