Tamerlane, we forgive you

20 posts in this topic

we gave you a country

opened our doors

a wife willed herself to you

a woman one of ours

she gave you a child

and we claim her too

just as

we claimed you

could not find your place

hatred secretly waited

always does when we lose love

life is hard for us too

you added to that challenge

ask Allah to help heal the damage

in our hearts

and your soul too

the light will always

outshine the darkness

two sides we all share

what else is there?

biology shows us

we are all the same

we don't outnumber you

we are you

—Thanks to SpiritWriter and Ruben Bolling for inspiring this piece.

Forgiveness is a very Christ-like option.

I can't see it catching on.

And just who gave you the right to use the word 'we'?

I am not one of the "we".

Would not this piece be better on facebook?!

Don't speak for me. I can do that just fine all on my own.

I do not forgive cowards. I do not forgive terrorists.

I am not one of the 'we'. (As Freetoroam so beautifully wrote)

Kind Regards.

A waste-paper basket would be my vote!

It occurs to me seeing this exchange that just as it is not ours to judge, it is not ours to forgive

It's a piece of creative writing, designed to ellicit an emotional response. I think it's pretty good, it has you all very emotive ;)

But not in a forgiving way.

Who's 'we?' I don't forgive monsters and I never will. Don't speak for me.

Trolling. But that is OK when it serves you and your amusement?

This is the artists and writers section - it is not about amusement it is about expression. You are aware it is a poem?

the light will always

outshine the darkness

A poem that gets this much comment, especially one that raises this much ire, belongs in The New Yorker.

Actually on second thought maybe not; I understood this poem. I don't generally understand the ones in The New Yorker.

It appears to me ..that hate is hate justified or not when we feel hate we are not feeling love and ..I have never seen hate smile peacefully ...just saying

It's true enough, hate is an experience we feel. The fist giving the guy a bloody nose is what he feels.
