In The Days Of Waiting For Recognition - Poem by Shalom Freedman

In the days of waiting for recognition
Life has passed
Years of waiting
Years passed-

How could I know then
That in the end
It would come to less than nothing
And all that dream and ambition
All that striving for greatness
Would end in failure and regret?

I walked a long road
I was faithful to it
But it came to nothing
And now near the end
It suddenly has become more difficult
To go on pretending
I have something to say to others.
