I Should Rise - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

“Come along, I shall take you”
One elderly neighbor assured me
“I shall help you to appear”
In exam and help you dear

I looked at him and wondered
He was not my cast even still offered
He was not that well being
Yet remained on top as king

I belonged to poor family
But had no source to collect money
It was combined forces examination
Life time chance for competition

He stayed for full week
I have no words to speak
He used to offer prayers in room
I guessed he wanted me to have blossom

Many years have passed
His face rushed on screen and miss
It reminds me of his kind gesture
Today I am under tree and very much secured

He too was hand to mouth
But something might have entered with truth
I was helped with only one aim
That I should rise and certainly claim
