The Crying

by a l i


Can my heart stop crying for a moment? Or am I asking it to not beat for a moment?
For everytime I ask my heart to cry not, it tells me it cannot smile. As long as one man kills another man for no reason. As long as one human dies of hunger while another over eats. As long as innocence is violated. As long as mothers cry and as long as man oppresses can my heart not cry?

Mercy my Allah..mercy…have mercy on us all oh Merciful….
