“We are all monsters at our core, the shadows we linger in breed our nature, the beast in us Blood, Bones and Shadows, only that we may live again, and despite all our darkness, questions arise in our minds for we know that judgement has come for us, we wonder whether our souls will be saved or not, and we shake from the depth of our souls, but we can’t show it, for we are the terrifying ones. “
Assassin’s Memoirs is about a man (an assassin) who lingers and writes down all the evil his done but never remorseful to one crime and that is him killing his father. He tries by all means to justify why he killed his Father.. blames society and the church yet at the point of his own death he turns to the same Church so as to repent his sins and hopefully his soul might receive salvation. His repentance shows the very essence of God almighty in our lives.
The book highlights all that he did and the bitter taste of all the glitter brought at the end of it all. As human beings we are very fragile for we do not know what tomorrow brings. No man born of a woman has the power to take and restore life. For every life here on earth is not ours to take and keep for all life we have is in the hands of God. We also need to remember that not all that glitters is gold. Hence we need to always trust he that created us regardless of every situation.
If he that has sinned against humanity and God can remember God at the point of death, then it’s wise for those still breathing to remember God in everything and depend on him entirely.
