Night by Toheed Sheu


I have once asked night questions
Easily asked with quotes
Confidently asked with poems
Stylishly asked with gestures.

Why are you favoring thieves?
Why are you a friend to evil doers?
Why do you always keep some secrets?
Why are you light to some birds and darkness to others?

Can’t forger the night
Curfew kept us inside like a prisoner
Heard sounds without drum
Night, you hide secrets

You blind sharp eyes
And re-blind blind eyes
Exposed man with light complexion
Black man can disappear when you appear

Night is for rapists
Night is for kidnappers
Night is for robbers
Night is for bad children

Night is for worshipers
Night is for prayer
Night is for readers
Night favor children
