OUR BEGINNING. By Shabeeh Haider


It feels so grand, to hold your hand,
And walk wherever you will lead,
The stars above, shining with love,
And you by me, is all I need.

Just one last while, these lips will smile,
As we will cross this endless shore,
Your hand in mine, will make things fine,
I’m sure a man cannot want more.

We will move on, all worries gone,
For we have cut ties with this Earth.
The splashing waves, will form our graves,
As we enter the Land of Mirth.

The moon and stars, shall bear the scars,
That we had once borne on our hearts.
The sun will rise, up in the skies,
And find us where the New Life starts.

About Danny Kemp

I was at work one sunny November day in 2006, stopped at a red traffic light when a van, driven incompetently, smashed into me. I was taken to St Thomas' Hospital and kept in for a while, but it was not only the physical injuries that I suffered from; it was also mental ones. I had lost confidence in myself let alone those around me. The experts said that I had post-traumatic stress disorder, which I thought only the military or emergency personnel suffered from. On good days, I attempted to go to work, sometimes I even made it through Blackwell Tunnel only to hear, or see, something that made me jump out of my skin and that's when the anxiety attacks would start. I told my wife that I was okay and going regularly, but I wasn't. I could not cope with life and thought about ending it. Somehow or other with the help of my wife and medical professionals, I managed to survive and ever so slowly rebuild my self-esteem. It took almost four years to fully recover, but it was during those dark depressive days that I began to write. My very first story, Look Both Ways, Then Look Behind, found a literary agent but not a publisher. He told me that I had a talent, raw, but nevertheless, it was there. His advice was to write another story and that I'm delighted to say, I did. The success of that debut novel, The Desolate Garden, was down to sheer hard work, luck, and of course, meeting a film producer.
