My Thoughtful Reflection/s

I looked into the mirror
Saw her staring back at me
I asked her point blank
“What are you thinking?”

She hesitated a while
Then looked away
Lowered her eyes but
Didn’t share her thoughts

She looked up again
Looked into my eyes
This time she asked
“What are you thinking?”

I opened up my heart
“I think about you
I think about others
I think about life”

Who are we?
Why are we?
What are we?
What will be?


She smiled, then sang
“Whatever will be, will be
The future’s not ours, to see
Que Sera Sera
What will be, will be.”


For The Daily Prompt: S/he Said
Pause whatever you’re doing, and ask the person nearest you what they’re thinking about (call someone if you have to). Write a post based on it.


Also for the Prompt: Don’t You Forget About Me
Imagine yourself at the end of your life. What sort of legacy will you leave?”

Well, we had a similar prompt for which I wrote my poem Life Diary.
So although I’m not in a mood to think about end of life but in general, do good be good. Live an honest life, serve others and people will remember you (if they have time).

But even if they remember you, it won’t matter much as you won’ t be here to see that.

    • It’s something like soliloquy, and it helps one connect to one’s inner self, or vice-versa. Here I was as usual fooling around with the prompt but unconsciously I ended up revealing my inner thoughts.
      Thanks Balroop for your lovely thoughts! I’ll check the link and listen to it.


    • That’s true! In our daily rigmaroles of life, sometimes we don’t feel happy despite everything. That’s when this inner digging is necessary, to find out what is lacking. And our relation to God…that’s personal. It operates best when in solitude.
