Repent – Show empathy, to YOURSELF!

“Everyone goes astray, but the least imprudent are they who repent the soonest”.    Voltaire 

It’s a common practice, many of us live in a pretense world – meaning we hate judging us ourselves, we consider us a superior human,or super human,who can never commit sins or mistakes, especially when others try to make us realize it.Maybe i am one of you guys also.Whenever we are alone, our conscience troubles us with a huge doze of realizations of our capacity to err,and how and when we have taken advantage of it.But believe me gals and guyz, its an indicator of our conscience – that it’s there and alive too!
But this is not enough….we cannot ignore our problem.First of all, to err is human, so don’t be too harsh on yourselves.Secondly, we can carry on in life with a better pace, and with less – heavier hearts and less-stressed brains if we learn to face our setbacks, and rectify our mistakes at the proper time.I know it is tough, gives ur ego a big demotion too, but for long-term satisfaction,it is extremely essential.

An important factor is our false pride.We are boasting everytime everywhere of how fantabulous we are!It develops added social pressures on us in accepting it when we are wrong.We start to enjoy hiding ourselves behind somebody who we really are not.
First of all, we need to stand infront of the mirror, and reiterate to personal selves that this is what we are, and it’s perfectly ok.Once we accept it, and start believing in the new us, next it’s time to say a very precious but difficult word, “Sorry!”
The one who deserves our repent before anyone else, is the Creator Himself.We take everything in this world, and whatever we are blessed with for granted.We consider losing morality once in a while as not a big deal.Morals come from our faith,our societies, and cultures, above all they come from and are made for humanity.Therefore we surpass all, and become rebels considering it our right and thinking we’re really cool.Repent, is not an easy thing, but if we ask for forgiveness from the depths of our hearts, we feel light.

Repent is extremely easy as compared to guilt, and guilt is what we bear until we repent.If we can ever imagine how painful,nerve wreckening guilt is, we will never commit mistakes to acquire it.It’s easier to bear the cries of the devil inside of us, then to face the remorse.Like George Crabbe phrased beautifully:

“To sigh, yet not recede; to grieve, yet not repent”.       George Crabbe

Let us stop being devoid of realisation, let’s make a fresh start today, by trying to repent, from the core of our hearts, we’ll emerge more relieved, positive, and pure.It’s never to late….

Tormented, with all hopes lost
Wailing and accepting defeat
Turn around, stands sorrow
Dark, twining way infront
No one to hold or console
Scorching heat, no shade in sight
No dreams, fears…..only pain
Crossing all barriers of strength
A pure tear of repent rolls down
Falls on the rugged, barren ground
A gust of cool breeze falls from the sky
Gives rise to life within the dead earth
Light fills the sky and the surroundings
Vanishes the woes, buds joy
The destination is visible, path clear
The devine help guides and gives strength
With purity within, no burdens on the heart
The soul embarks on a new journey again
A teardrop vanished the agony
A footstep seeded hope
Countless lie strugling
With a drop of repent!
