The man who committed 99 Murders

The man who committed 99 Murders

On his 99th Murder
he heard someone say
"you'll be punished tomorrow
for the crimes you did today."
So he went to a man
who was respected and good
Told him what he'd done
would he be forgiven if he could?
The man shoook his head
and quickly he said
"Hell is made for people like you
God'll punish for the people you slew"
So the man said "oh well
if my final resting cell
is that fiery pit of hell
I might kill you as well"
But he still felt blue
With the fact that he knew
He was not worthy of Allah
And the tears fell down his face
As he felt out of place
In the house for Salah
Someone heard his weeping
"What painful secrets are you keeping?
Why are those your tears that are seeping
through your clothes?"


Throughout life we make mistakes. Sometimes they're small and sometimes they're monumental. But more often then not, mistakes lead to hurting the people around us. Sometimes when the people around us hurt, instinctively we hurt too.

In such times, we are reminded that to err is human but to forgive is divine (or some such bs lol). Forgiveness is the act of acknowledging ones mistakes and regretting the decision we now wished we had not made. Something as simple as 'im sorry' can begin to mend even the most broken of hearts.
The act of forgiving is to like setting a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you. It takes much strength to forgive, for forgiveness is an attribute of the strong (Ghandi said that).
