My name is Asad and I'll be sharing my

Poems,
Prose &
Ideas.

This is a personal website. I share these thoughts as a service to myself and my children. I am content with an audience of One but welcome travellers who might find in me a kindred soul.

A brief
introduction

I used to write and I enjoyed seeing my thoughts take form. I lost it though, that urge to write. Other things compelled me elsewhere.

As I turn 40, I wish to balance my passions and start writing again. 

Hopefully this act of putting my past work online will inspire me to be; more of me, more than me and write!

All the
latest

I publish periodically. Poems from my past, essays inspired by current events & unfinished thoughts that slip through.
