An Angel Died That Day

She died in the cruellest of ways 
An undeserved death for the person she was
for the lives she'd changed and the friends that loved her unconditionally. 
It was like the world had been torn to shreds.

Even after she died she didn't get the dignity she deserved. 
Her cold lifeless body left on the cold hard ground, untouched. 
Just a thin, dirty sheet shielded others from seeing her body,
She lay there three days, treated without respect, without care.

Eventually she was taken away, put in an ambulance and driven off
Her friends, the people she cared for and loved not even able to say goodbye
one day she had been there, the next she was gone.
Their tears fell unrelenting, feeling the pain she could not express. 

The people that loved her most fought for the truth
they were hungry for justice.
But there were others, bigger , with more power 
who were bent on covering up the crime, so the dark side of humanity prevailed. 

A beautiful soul died that day, it shouldn't have happened.
A beautiful soul was left out in the cold, it shouldn't have happened.
A beautiful soul was disrespected, it shouldn't have happened. 
but the beautiful soul remained a beautiful soul nonetheless.

She had so many goals, aspirations, wonderful things to come in her life , it was merely beginning.
 But her dreams, her life were cut short by the punishing and inhumane world she lived in. 
The world in which she lived wasn't designed for such a kind and generous soul,
she had so much to live for, but too many people were intent on destroying her flame, 
And that is why an Angel died on the desperate, and doom ridden day.
