THE UNUSUAL SOUL, YOU TOO MUST KNOW

================================

She is a caressing soul,

and yet, she doesn’t know;

how beautiful she is

and how far she may go.

She is so brilliant,

she shines brighter

than any blushing star;

her heart is filed

with compassion

that fixed my decaying scar.

She is warm-hearted

with incomparable heart,

as if being sent

from the seventh skies;

she is simply an angle –

in human disguise.

This society is merciless

denying such a rare soul;

it drags her down

under its unkind feet,

but she is so unusual

that she never forgets

her own human rule.

She gives comfort

that nothing and

no one else can do;

alas, these greedy world

consistently tells her no.

She is a beautiful soul

you too must know;

though they brought her down

to her lowest of flow;

yet, she stands stronger

like a blushing star –

in a wondrous glow.

Though sometimes,

they hurt her

and make her

face alone the flaw;

yet, she gently smiles against

every burden –

just like the nightingales

that only in the darkness

glow.

She treats everyone equally,

with profound love

and compassion;

like the north zephyr

that shake

the mighty ocean.

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.
