IN THE HONOUR OF A NEW HOPE

====================================
Let your eyes widely wander;
wander across all those
undiscovered beauties
that yet, you haven’t seen;
let go of your fears
with a loud scream
if those fearful thoughts
still bother you from within.

Scream until you feel empty
of those fears and sorrows,
scream until you no longer
feel burdened by them;
open your breached eyes
to the wave of a new dawn,
and let all the darkness
from within
be gone.

Let me pick your grief up off
and put them one-by-one
unto a sailing wind;
therein the mighty wind
shall enliven your heart
with this new born love
that you yearn
to be seen.

My dear,
let this love be flowing
like the early zephyr
with caressing delight;
I’m right here with you,
its time to adore this love;
I promise from now on,
everything will be all right!

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.
