You cannot see my guilt
but you can see my lies.
You cannot escape the sin
But why do I have to take it on the chin?

Those pleasures I enjoyed
Those consequences I forgot
And now, I see my death
They are holding my breath.

My heart was beating irregularly
Why are they looking at me?
Am I terrorist that killed a hundred child?
Why throw stones at me?

They judge like a god
They **** with their eyes
I know where to go
To the one who's good and love endures.

I'm on my knees
They'll take my life like a beast
I'm ready.
Then Love approached me.

"He that is without sin among you,
let him be the first to cast a stone at her."

I heard Him saying.
Those eyes who knows nothing
Now they stop throwing.

I found forgiveness
I found freedom
How can the One I hurt the most
Save me and forgive me?

Thou mercy is everlasting
Thou grace is overflowing
You broke my chain
and take my pain.

I found life
I found forgiveness
No guilt no shame.
Thank you for redemption.
This poem is in relation with  John 8:1-7.
8 1 but Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.

2 At dawn he appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them. 3 The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group 4 and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. 5 In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” 6 They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him.

But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. 7 When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.”
