CURSE TO BE THIS UNKIND WAR

=============================
I’m the least fortunate child
of this unkind century;
and the most aggrieved child
of your time.

I’m a war-torn refugee,
the survival of wars,
with a heart that bears
so many cracks.

I’m a war-torn refugee
who carries the pieces of
his shattered memories,
in his torn-back.

I’m the survival of
the wicked forces;
who took away
everything from me,
and caused me so many
unreturnable losses.

My heart is wounded,
and it’s wounded again
and again.

I don’t know why this life
has turned so ruthless
that only wages on me
this much pain.

My heart is deeply wounded
by the affliction of war;
it has hardly shattered
into millions of fragments
and scattered under
their merciless feet.

Perhaps,
I bear so many scars;
some of them can be seen
and some of them
just can’t be seen.

I have no grievances
or complaints now,
for only my silence
has become my solace;
and the solitude has become
my tending grace!

About samad1986

Abdul Samad Haidari is a poet, writer, teacher and a former freelance journalist, currently residing in Indonesia as a stateless refugee. He is the author of The Red Ribbon He fled his home country at the age of seven and grew up wandering in Pakistan and Iran as a child refugee, and was separated from his family for the majority of his childhood. 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.
