Fallen Short

by Yolanda Shabazz

	Falling like a boulder
	From some high place.
	And we must be reminded again that
	Heroes are human.
	Intelligent ones
	Whose moral mistakes can be major

	Your enemies rejoice
	Laughing out loud
	That you have fallen short
	They beg others to contribute to the noise.

	Respectfully, a few decline 
	Knowing the tragedy of any human being in error.
