Angola's Boys

I’m in shock, no words to say
Of how I feel about what I heard that day
Speechless isn’t right
Won’t explain the tears that fell that night
4 young boys took too early
Maybe God was in a hurry
You didn’t think of what it’d do
When you too the boys to come join you
I know they’re safe and sound
I wish some answers could be found
So many questions unsaid-
So many thoughts in my head
Of why them? What makes God think
He can take them away-let us sink
Into the dark-drown in our tears
One car crash makes true to everyone’s fears
We’re all a family and He took away
4 amazing brothers from us before we could say
That they are needed here with us
Because this pain is too great-it’ll overpower us
Maybe we should hold our heads high
Knowing they are playing football or soccer in the sky
There’s a darkness surrounding us all
Let’s just hope we don’t trip and fall
Into an abyss, uncertain if we’ll make it
It won’t help if all we do is sit
We must stand for our brothers,
For our mourning mothers
If we unite we can be strong
A strength the boys had all along
