Dawna Markova

  • I will not die an unlived life, / I will not go in fear / Of falling or catching fire, / I choose to inhabit my days, / To allow my living to open to me, / To make me less afraid, / More accessible, / To loosen my heart / Until it becomes a wing, / A torch, a promise. / I chose 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.
