More Steps - Poem by shimon weinroth

moment of consummation, unachieved
moment of accomplishment, unattained
moment of achievement, not reached
all stood on the shoulders

of ninety nine steps,
who worked and wearied
to the goal, faltered
did not carry the burden
to the summit,

no achievement
the steps were forgotten
no consummation
the same old horizons
no accomplishment

ninety nine working bees unremembered
ninety nine soldier ants unaccomplished
the steps were of no importance
meanless fate to an incomplete state

all the energy and hopes
immature, still born, died phantoms
yet they were and might have been,
is there no way to hail their flight
