The Night

By: Muhammad Syarif Fadhlurrahman

Like that of bats I'm up awake at night,

For freedom doesn't reside in lights of day,

It hides behind the shadows 'f night.

I'm free t'express my self in it,

Befriended only by lights indoor.

Indeed wonderous the silence is,

So peaceful and secure,

So calm as that of coffee mix'd

As everybody rests, awake I remain

Enjoy the peace I rarely find at day

In peaceful and secure a time I write this art

To such condition I am truly addicted
