Tori

The loss of your life
For me was no suprise
Though it hurt no less  
You were my best friend  
 
You were failed from the begining  
Given no fair chance in life  
The hand you were delt  
Was one nobody should ever have to fight  
 
Your mother always against you  
Your fathers sexual abuse  
You were constantly criticized
Nobody believed in you  
 
Just twenty four years old  
Trying to make it on your own  
Alone, lost and confused  
No guidance, nobody to lead you  
 
Though you always tried  
You just couldn't find the right path in life  
 
The pain and confusion  
Frustration and anger  
Led you to the life of a user  
 
Cars totaled  
Criminal record  
Permantley labeled  
 
You lost all you had  
Locked up, then sent to rehab  
 
When you were released you vowed to stay focused and clean  
But you struggled  
And failed to reach out for help or go to weekly meetings  
 
It became too much  
The temptation on the streets  
You had a craving  
And you chose to feed  
 
That last high  
Cost you your life  
You overdosed  
And it was too late for Naarcan to save you this time  
 
Even in death you were alone  
Everyone failed you  
From the begining, until the day you were gone  
 
 
And I'm so sorry.  
 
 
Until we meet again  
Rest in peace  
Tori
