One Step [a poem]

By Cara Amy Goldthorpe | Featured Contributor


One step 
I take, and another 
Towards this light 
Pulling me on 
One step 
Through a tunnel of shadow 
Pain and burden 
I feel before I rise

For there is no escaping 
No shortcut for mortality’s weeping 
That we must live and breathe 
Through every second 
Appreciating 
The lessons come 
To prepare us for 
The stairway up to 
Heaven

Hola, I’m Cara. After 18 months practicing as a lawyer in London, I found myself locked down in the jungle of Costa Rica when borders closed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Having recently suffered from a post-viral fatigue and burnout, I then took the opportunity to continue living out here, devoting my energy to health and deepening my connection to nature and to creative expression. Through sharing my stories and poetry, I hope to inspire you to live more healthily and in harmony with this beautiful earth.
