Awakening

2 Comments

Found this poem the other day and fell in love.

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.

  2. Ah, the long-lost last verse of Billy Joel’s ‘We Didn’t Start the Fire’. Personally, I think he should have left it in.
