Winged Creature

You’re a winged creature,
Flying into the blue with nothing to lose,
Endless time to learn the tricks of the trade,
Of being the angel you’ve always been,
You were earth bound with jeans, t-shirt, and converse,
On your way to become the person we knew you would be,
Yet tragedy struck at an unexpected time,
In a way we have yet to understand,
You thought you would be in a better place,
With the angels you always spoke of,
This world was not treating you the way you deserved,
I wish you could have spoken out,
Try to fix what was damaging your soul,
It was being abuse, mistreated, and traumatized,
And we had no clue until that one day,
Silence is deadly,
Yet you know that more than anyone.
