I was mistaken

I thought I had reached
The summit;
And I was very happy;
I even celebrated;
But I was mistaken;
I hadn’t made it;
I was still a long way
Away from my target;
Sometimes we are fine;
And think we are on top;
When we aren’t;
And sometimes, we are
Right on top,
But are not even aware.
Yes, Indeed,
I thought I had made it;
I had not;
I was mistaken;
Yet. I don’t feel bad;
I am not discouraged;
I will continue to hit
The iron till
I bend it.
I will continue to climb,
Till I reach the summit.
