Poetry

I RAISE MY HOPE HIGH By Adisa Aminat Olabisi

Written by Bada Yusuf Amoo

I raise my hopes high

And my trust I place in him

Who taught man what he knows not

As I commence another test of life

I beseech and pray fervently to thy lord

To bless my pen to write that which is correct

Correct in the eyes of the examiner

To grant me retentive memory

So that I can recollect vividly what is right

Right in the eyes of the examiner

To bestow upon me sound health

So that I can be strong enough to sit

Appropriately to put down that which is accurate

Accurate in the eyes of the examiner

And most paramount to ease my affairs

So that after the exams…………

I shall be able to continue the journey

To the path of success

And be the one to collect in my hands

Certificate of excellence

So help me God

I pray.
