The Reason Behind - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

Why thoughts are pushing me to the corner?
Why that stage has approached me sooner?
The creator of universe may be clever
He has not given permanent stage to any one forever

It suggests that I must calm down
Leave all worldly pleasure and go down
Take no more responsibility and think fresh
Release the control over property and cash

I had collected it over long years
With great struggle and through tears
I had sweated in noon and gathered little by little
It had given me some respite at the end to settle

It was nice to feel with whatever I had
I was able to provide them house and bread
With good education and long carrier to enjoy
There was no room for complain or cause to annoy

Now I had realized that birds had powerful wings
They had everything on hand to dance and sing
"Was I coming in their way" this thought puzzled
I could not sleep properly that day and it troubled

So far they had shown no discourtesy
I was given everything and they obeyed too
There was no room for putting mistrust
But I had to act fast and it was must

I knew that day may come one day for me to quit
If I do it willingly then all members may greet
If I fail to distribute equally then it may create imbalance
So I decided to give it in everybody's presence

"Dear sons and daughters" I had called them in my room
I have given you enough of freedom to grow and groom
It is now your turn to share the responsibility
Relieve me from this burden and handle it with your capability

They saw the reason behind
As there was nothing unusual to find
It was all agreed amicably
I heaved a sigh and breathed happily
