Dasha Y gave many friends a gratitude rock
I will not live an unlived life,
I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire.
I choose to inhibit 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 blossom,
and that which came to me as blossom,
goes to fruit.
