The Kind Hearts and The Harden Hearts
I remembered a story which my mom used to say
It's about a kind heart young man they met on a rainy day
My naughty little brother was just a little baby on that day
It was slightly drizzling and they were in a hurry that day.
This kind young man was after his prayers
Came out of the mosque in Wellawatte and he shared
He gave my little brother the round embroidered cap he wore
Saying that he has another one at home.
So, that day my little brother came home with my mom and father
He didn't get any sicknesses thanks to the Muslim Brother
How wonderful to think and know that we can live without fear
I don't understand why there's so much of blood shed to have power?
Sometimes I still have my child fears
But I'm not afraid of the Muslims with beards
As there was once an elderly bus conductor
Who showed kindness as he's a father.
My little sister and I were after English classes
My sister started crying in pain as she made faces
Her tooth was hurting I was so helpless
Didn't know what to do and I was speechless.
This kind Muslim man came to our aid
For some medicine at the pharmacy he paid
I was able to bring my sister home safely that day
I think it's the character that have a peaceful way.
I used to watch 'Peace Tv' with my dad back then
Even recently I watched to see if there's any change
It's as usual criticizing the Bible instead of teaching the Quran
I wondered where's the peace mentioned in the Islam?
With all due respect I do not know what's in the Quran
I don't know why there's so much of killing stating its for the religion
All I can say is that the way I see, it is for a selfish gain
I don't understand how anyone can be won through arguments and killing?
For me I'm not that much bothered about a person's caste or creed
I believe in a person's born nature and character without any greed
Genuine concern for another person's well being
It is admirable who value life in spite of their belief.
I don't understand why Muslim women are almost fully covered?
In this warm sweating weather I'm sure they must be feeling smothered
I was just wondering isn't it nice these beautiful women to wear modest decent clothing
To be accepted and appreciated as they stay clean, neat with much nicer smelling?
