My wounded pen strokes with pain resembling in my hand: ‎
Illuminate the shade the subtleties of joined images steeped in blood. ‎
The old, helpless father scratching his face with bleeding tears. ‎
The old, vulnerable mother is lying unconscious with dried tears in her suffering eyes folded. ‎
The sisters are grieving out of painful suffering over the dead body of their young brother lying in ‎blood. ‎
They mourn; shout out of sorrows reaches to the gloomy sky.‎
It speaks nothing without grieving as grass frost encrusted and the wind’s fleck and fold.‎
Grey linen clouds, the road leading i wish i knew where the grass frost encrusted not out of wounded ‎bodies. ‎
The moon shines to bring hope, but it goes down with darkness. ‎
Hopes are still vivid as unearthing a skull, as grass frost encrusted.‎

Abdul served with the Norwegian refugee council (NRC), ActionAid Afghanistan, Daily Outlook Afghanistan group of newspapers, and The Daily Afghanistan Express. As a freelance journalist, Abdul wrote articles and editorials about on-the-ground realities, which were then circulated widely.
