I know,
it sounds stupid to you
but I don’t know too
why have I felt today
that I have known you.

I have felt that
I met someone before
who was just like you,
with the same smiles,
with the same face,
and someone,
with the same fairy eyes.

You seemed quite familiar,
your voice had
the same rhyme;
the rhyme
that I felt,
I have heard before.

You know,
I still try,
and I try it very hard
to remember
how come you are
so known to this
yearning heart;
the heart that has once
very dearly worshiped you.

And I’m pretty sure
that this longing heart
that has long wept
unto you doesn’t lie.

It whispers that
this is the known love,
I ever profoundly
loved before.

I think it’s you,
the one,
once I divinely loved.

Maybe someone,
I loved in another time;
someone that I loved
in a very familiar place;
where I loved,
with ultimate grace.

Maybe that’s you,
the familiar stranger,
I once loved.

someone that I loved,
in some other existence,
that I still weep unto!

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.
