Another year passed me by
but with no generous grace;
another month passed me by
but only with gushing cries.

Another day passed me by
it too didn’t release me
of this dark and scary place;
neither anyone revealed his heart
to these wet and begging eyes!

Friday too strolled by,
Saturday is nothing
but a troubling blur;
as my heart from
within lonely cries.

Sundays silently wander
with my loneliness and dance
at my enduring worries;
Mondays end with sour tears
and with a heavy feeling
of miseries.

My nights are filled
with unexplainable woes;
and my sweet dreams
are replaced by so many
traumatic pictures of violence
in my troubled head,
that no one knows.

Have you ever like me
wanted to cry out aloud;
but no tears come out
and then you blankly stare
into the empty space
while feeling,
as if your heart breaks
into pieces?

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.
