I'm trying to repent my sins but cant find the courage
Maybe if i destroy the painting, my problems will go away.
Dorian tries to improve his life but cannot gain the courage to confess his crimes, the painting now reveals his supposed desire to repent. In a fury, Dorian picks up the knife and attempts to destroy the painting.
There is a crash, and his servants enter to find the portrait, unharmed, showing Dorian Gray as a beautiful young man. On the floor lies the body of their master—an old man, horribly wrinkled and disfigured, with a knife plunged into his heart.
