A PLEA FOR A ROHINGYAN PATIENT 


==============================
When I escaped fear of death and persecution,
I sought your mercy in the name of humanity
to grant me your humanitarian felicity.

When I escaped fear of death and persecution,
I put my own fingers in my bleeding scars
while running the bullets for my life in your arms.

When I escaped fear of death and persecution,
I thought the children of god would be rich in protection
knowing not that their hearts are filled with hesitation.

When I escaped fear of death and persecution,
I thought I could be at peace from those brutes,
Knowing not that here, I will face more cruelties.

When I escaped fear of death and persecution,
I didn’t have seizure and loss of muscle contractions,
I didn’t know people in here would impose on me
this painful illness or put me in this fearful situation.

When I escaped fear of death and persecution,
I pleaded for a safe home with equation,
not a prison which is called “detention”.

When i escaped fear of death and persecution,
I thought my sore wounds be healed and mended
but not by your oppression and mass annihilation.

When I escaped fear of death and persecution,
I only asked for your love and compassion,
not passing your bail for trail and insulation.

When I escaped fear of death and persecution,
I run unto you by wandering millions of fars
to appeal for a safe and peaceful destination.

When I escaped fear of death and persecution,
i run to forego my last breathe for your elation
not for your imprisonment in Manus Detention.

When I escaped fear of death and persecution,
I pleaded for your humanly treatment,
not your torture and persistent isolation.

Look at me only in the eyes of a human being,
when I stand revealed before you as one being,
pleading for your mercy in the spirit of human love
no more torture can I endure than this,
please grant me your compassionate mercy
in the name of your own race, I beg for your pity.

Grant me another chance to taste a one more life,
and enjoy a dignified life just as of you in your human hive.

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.
