The clock ticks…

Away from home the clock ticks

for two men, guilty men,

they don’t deny mistakes they’ve made,

big mistakes ten years ago.

 

Soon they will have no chance

to further show remorse

to live another way, to make up even slightly

for the harm they caused before.

 

It’s other men who decide their fate, to decide if they will live…

I beg these men, who have this power to show that they themselves are brave,

strong and merciful.

To be brave is to be humble.

To be strong is to show compassion.

To be truly human is to exercise mercy.
