Salaam aleikoum wa rahmatullah wa barakatu,
welcome sis to this week's poetry slam, which is about FORGIVENESS this week. I think you know that forgiveness is very important in our beautiful deen and that we should try to forgive people who wronged us and also ask forgiveness from our Lord. You can find more information about this subject at other topics in the Heaven Club insha'Allah, so do visit them soon . I have found a simple poem about forgiveness and I would like to share it with you and I hope you'll do the same insha'Allah 'cause we have great writers here.
If you try to reach inside of your heart
you can find forgiveness, or at least the start
And from that place where you can forgive
is where Hope, and Love, also thrive and live
And with each step that you try to take
and with that chance that your heart might break
Comes so much happiness, and so much strength
which alone can carry you a fantastic length
For hate and anger will not get you there
and though you say that you just don't care
You can EASILY avoid the pain on which hate feeds
. . . the kind of hurt that no one needs
Just make the move, take that first stride
let go of the thing known as "Foolish Pride"
Maybe then you can start to repair the past
into something strong, that will mend, and last!
Lots of love,
