My Lived in Life

February 5, 2012

This quote was the  inspiration for my longest and perhaps one of my most  emotional poems to date

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 comes to me as seed goes to the next as blossom and that which comes to me as blossom, goes on as fruit.” To celebrate my lived in life I wrote Uncaged, Feel free to look for it under my poem listings.

Peace and Love

    A wonderful quote; inspiring words. I really like the ‘risk of significance’ part, it says a lot. And BTW, your poem is amazing 🙂
