Let There Be No More Grief By Lazola Pambo

Let There Be No More Grief
 
Let there be no more grief, in the lives and hearts of mankind
death at some point, tip-toed endlessly, like a thief in the night
but today the pain ends, and a great new, prevalent life is born
Let there be no more grief, by the shortcomings of yesterday
the race had to be run, in the hope, for the best-applied result
many before us have been laid to rest in the soil eroded galley
Let there be no more grief or never-ending fear for that matter
death cannot beat us twice, or deeply sink us twenty feet below
bright was the sun before and the glow shall A Luta Continua
