Sin and Redemption – Hassan Mustafa

Illustration by Simoul Alva

Don’t say, sin is an immoral act,

It seems, it is an unavoidable act,

Sin might be a dark spot on the soul,

It seems, it is a creation of the self,

Don’t say, sin is root to all evils,

It seems, it is the reminder of the absent.

Hassan Mustafa recently graduated from Webster University with a major in management and minor in international relations. He is interested in poetry, fiction, intellectual history and philosophy. He is currently residing in Lahore and is finishing his first novella ‘A tormented philosopher’.
