Biography of NAYYAR SHABBIR AHMAD

I firmly believe in destiny. So when fate crossed my path at the early age of 24 and left me wheelchair bound I can say, hand on heart, that, that catastrophe turned my life right around - for the better.
Within 6 months of my disability
I was fortunate enough to discover
(Not everyone is shown the light)
That I was meant to become a writer

Good, bad - indifferent...?
Only time will tell

Had I been able-bodied
I may never have taken up pen and paper
Spent all day labouring over a computer
Never written a poem, play or short story
And, more important than that
I might never have been
Acquainted with the inner me

I Wish

People say I was with you
I wish it were true
But - unfortunately
It isn't

I think of you
Dream of you
All the time
Even though I know
