Statues Crumble

I stand straight with perfect posture
At every event.
Be it a birthday party,
Or a funeral.

And I don't have much stone left now.
Not sure how many more times I can hold them.

It's nice,
Warm,
Pretty.
Then I hear the first of the
Trucks and I know

No matter how far I get,
It always catches up to me.

I keep running.
Running away from all the hurt,
