​The Last Drop. 

The Last Drop.

I heard her waiting for the last time I dropped.
The drop was disparate breathing – living –sane – me.
The haunting feelings clutched as I stared in drop for your drop.
The ray seems counting it every night I drop.
The drop every night i drop in pain is for your drop.
I watched your eyes were bleeding out of drops.
As you twinkled the last time we dropped.

I moved on carrying my drops as if in guilty fray.
As I moved on – I count my own drops and you do yours.

I heard you count no more your drops.
I heard the drop you dropped I dropped –
Were the last drop we dropped.

I heard the greedy weeds grow in your chaotic garden well – Out of your drop.
Hugging you in nostalgia every time you drop.

But you know, I can’t see it anymore they last time we dropped.

Stay they plead I stop my drop.
I must not dare to stop your drop –
The last time we dropped.

For two years, at the age of eight and nine, he was forced into child labour in the construction industry in Iran. In contrast, Pakistan offered refugees like him the opportunity to study and work. This education and work experience culminated in Abdul teaching computer studies and English language courses at the Intel Computer Center and Pak Oxford Professionals. After the collapse of the Taliban government, Abdul returned to Afghanistan thinking that the security situation had improved, and that he could take part in the reconstruction of his war-torn country. With this in mind, Abdul served as a freelance journalist and humanitarian aid-worker in areas of the country that remained dangerous to civilians because of the influence of terrorist groups. 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. These had a particular focus on women and children’s rights, corruption, transparency and accountability in government, warlords and terrorist groups’ actions and the systematic persecution of minority groups in both Afghanistan and Pakistan.
