My Life Had Just Began…

My heart burns with every thought

Of those whom I resided there

I think of the times I had spent with them;

I don’t know when and where

The first time I met all of them

I thought I had found my mates,

Cherishing every moment that passed by

Who now I realize were total wastes

The materialistic love,

Embedded in the selfish eyes,

Ah…!! I was an innocent boy


To get convinced by their lies

The feeling of being used every time,

Has eaten away all emotions in me.

It has erupted all my senses,

Like a thunderstorm in a sea.

When now I look in the mirror,

I see a boy shattered and torn.

The teary eyes have many stories to tell

Perplexed I ask myself, “When will be the end of this mourn…??”

For more than three decades, Pakistan has been home to one of the world’s largest refugee communities: hundreds of thousands of Afghans who have fled the repeated wars and fighting their country has undergone. Since the 2002 U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan, some 3.8 million Afghans have returned to their home country, according to the U.N.’s refugee agency. (AP Photo/Muhammed Muheisen)


Depressed and defeated when I look around,

I see myself alone.

I close my eyes and look inside me,

I search for my soul…

I raised my head and looked at the sky,

Tears welling in my eyes,

I cried and screamed ejecting all the grief.

And asked my Lord, “Where am I…??”



Here you are, Here it be.

Was the answer supposedly.

I realized it was just the starting,

Of my rocky journey.

I wiped my tears and cleared my throat,

And geared up once again.

I stood up with new zeal and zest,

Knowing my life had just began,

My life had just began…..
