May we retire with our shine

I have seen great men fall
From the pinnacle
Of their prestige 
Tumbling aimlessly
To an eventual crash 
On brutal surface. 
Quietly I observed 
Swallowed in my thoughts 
– wondering
Is it that life can be so cruel
Or great men too can be careless? 
In my heart I say a prayer
May we retire with our shine.
