Standing

tall and proud

looking down

as the world weathers

at it's feet

a silent vigil

a watchman of the world

unchanging

unmoving

 

made of stone

white marble

glossed and cold

simple and elegant

smooth

yet grooved

by the greatest of craftsmen

 

this pillar stands

where others fall

alone and solitary

 

amid a changing world

this column stands

a reminder of what once was

 

but slowly

 

bit by bit

 

this champion of stone

is chipped

and cracked

and dirtied

 

others soon visit the pillar

and leave their mark

upon

it's once white surface

 

dulled and grayed by the world

 

once a silent beacon

of hope

and strength

 

it now sags from people

 

leaning and pushing

 

pulling and ripping

 

until nothing is left

but stone
