Bewilderment , USA
As over-achievers , at under-rated things ,
recognition escapes those , who fly with lead wings.
Though the glory that's attendant , with a meteoric rise ,
shines not on these ascendants , the more treasured are the skys .
Small advances have more meaning , when one truly must compete .
Not just against another , who may of foot be fleet .
But un-daunted by adversities ,keeping lessers from such flight ,
and un-sung , un-heard , un-noticed ,aspire to great heights .
By what scale should we judge them , if we're qualified at all ?
For if we stand on equal footing , what's un-equal is the fall .
By what effort did they come here , to stand with feet supplanted ?
At this crest in their achievements , that most would take for granted .
