One More Step to Take


Just one more step to take
while finish lines
define destiny
breathlessly I stop
and wait
should I cross?
this race is mine to win…
but hush!
time creates a pause
and as I stare at the gate
In a moment that is now,
I cry
because victory means goodbye
and beat down by persistence
I no longer know why
selfish eyes controlled my feet
so resolute, I return,
and do not cross over
for I have many more steps to take
and reluctantly admit…
a great deal to learn

By Barbara Tremblay Cipak

Poem: This poem speaks from two angles, the first being the reluctance of an person to move forward in life to grow and to take the next step necessary to leave what’s done behind – The other could be a person whose spirit has left their body, having a near death experience, gets to the gates of heaven realizing they have to go back because they haven’t completed all they’re meant to do, and most importantly there’s more to learn.
