What's After Victory?

After the battle has been fought
and won
and the wine had been drunk
and the songs had been sung
and the laughter had ceased
what's next?

when the speech that has
been written and memorized
had earned it's applause
what happens in the silence that followed
when everyone had gone home?

and the plans that were carefully laid
had already materialized
and satisfaction was gained
what happens to the hand that
after it touched success?

what's at the top when you reach it?
and the tears and perspiration
had dried,
and the burden that was carried
had been put down and...
the climb had been put to rest.

what's after victory?
