I came across a poem today in a book jacket
it resonated with my recent thoughts.
I was feeling as though I have not been living to my fullest capacity.
Not feeling as alive as I should. Withering in my prime of prime's.
Knowing it's time to live. Live fully. Live more beautifully.
Kiss the skies. Let my heart open and love again. Feel the beauty,
the amber glow, let it warm, and let the waters cool,
just FEEL...feel something. There is a Goddess inside and she
wants to feel, to breathe, to live through me...
*a introspective lyric © by Calli 2009
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,
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.
fully alive - by dawna markova
