Never forget what you are. The rest of the world will not. Wear it like an armour, and it can never be used to hurt you. ~ Tyrion L | I was told to walk this bridge, everyone else was. I have a terrible fear of heights and the weather made it even worse. You see in my head, I was a slave to my thoughts, I just couldn’t grasp the idea of picking myself up and doing it. Until a tiny voice inside me said I could do it. So I did. One hand on the cold and extremely rain dripping rope and literally putting my best foot forward on the wooden plank. One by one. And I was at the end.
My trip companions cheered and I was shocked and so happy.
I had just conquered my biggest fear.
I could do heights. I could un-do the nay-ers in my head.
And on my own.
He was born in Khyber Agency, the fifth son of Bazmeer Khan. In 1915 he enrolled in primary school. The teacher asked him to write the Urdu alphabet (Alif, Bhe, Fei………). Instead he drew the figure of a human, displaying his artistic abilities. Because of this, the teacher beat him and he began to hate school. He went to Islamia Collegiate school in the fifth class, and started writing poetry in Urdu. He wrote many tales (Afsana). He chose Urdu because his friend told him "You can't get a good position in the Urdu language, so you must start poetry in your native tongue". Hamza did not like writing in Urdu, but he wrote in Urdu anyway. He wrote his first Pashto ghazal in 1933.
Za da yaar da makh pa shama zei da danesta swazama,
Shamei tha bha ghura hase be aqala parwa na kawei.
Zaa saa dar hada mashahoor sharab nushei kei yam,
Zam che mekhanei tha isteqbal me mekhane kawei. .
