Fully Alive

I recently came across this poem and it spoke to me so powerfully that I wanted to share.   Love Jo xx.

Fully Alive

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 a seed
goes to the next as blossom

and that which came
to me as blossom
goes on as fruit.
