This poem concerns the fact that we often overlook the task before others,
and only acknowledge the successes of those before them. The little man
against angry mountains is a joke to the man, and he does not see success
in the little man, but when the nieghbooring man acknowledges the other
little men that succeded then the man is impressed by the 'grandfathers'
and still scolds the little man inevetably until the little an can
accomplish what his grandfathers have. In short, people are worthless until
they accompish something...

I think the poem points out the daunting task of creating more good than
evil in the world. It seems impossible, but with some faith that it will
happen, the miraculous prevails. The power of completing this task does
not lie within us, but within Jesus Christ who lives in us. While we live
in this world that only seeks instant gratification, we can overcome
mountains of sin, along with all opposition, with His help.

i think this poem tells us that size does not matter... and even though he
is so small he might still be able to defeat the "mountain" which is a
symbol of big and strong people.
