Title: The Darkness of the Prison

By: Najeeb Al Ress

Date: 2012

Oh the darkness of this prison, descend on us for we love the dark;

There is naught after imprisonment but the glory of a rising dawn

Oh guards, be gentle, and listen to our words;

Deny us not this air, for banning it is a sin

Oh land of pride and home of the loyal;

We the youth have arrived, and fear no death

And we had all promised, the day we gave our oaths;

To remain true to our word and took truth for our creed

Oh ringing chains, sing me a song to raise my spirits;

For your voice gives meaning to oppression and hardship

By God I have not forgotten what my country suffers;

So bear witness, oh stars, that I remain faithful and loyal
