"Who Hears, While Not Listening" - Memoir: A Father Looks Back on His Actions and Asks Forgiveness
About the Book
The word forgiveness is a very powerful word. It takes courage to ask for it and courage to give it. But even when forgiveness is given, the pain still lingers. This powerful book was written by a father who abused his son and now asks why.
In his powerful book, Alim M. Bey says, “Numerous times during the days, weeks, months and years, I ponder the actions that caused me to mistreat my child when there was no good reason. I inflicted mental harm to him, more so than physical, on a young child who did nothing wrong and didn’t deserve such bad treatment. Just the thought of the bad actions I imposed upon my child constantly entered my mind, reminding me that I did something completely uncalled for. For this, I spoke to my child time and time again, and he has said more times than I can count, ‘Dad, forget it. That’s all in the past. I forgive you and you should forgive yourself.’ Even if this is so, the pain still exists within me for unfairly mistreating my child for no apparent reason.”
Who Hears, While Not Listening tells an important story that still resonates with the author. “Even as I function through the timespan of my life, I still find it hard to forget my cruel actions.” But forgiveness is the first step to healing.
