Reflections – Padmini Jain


Should I grieve the loss
of that monthly income?
Or bid adieu to the outlet
of my creative gratification?

Writing an obituary to my undertaking
does not come easy to me
And yet pouring words on a bland piece of
seems cathartic to me.

But what do I mourn?
’cause lamenting is crucial
for the cleansing of the soul.

But after a whimper
I seemed to vociferate
and surprise myself with breaking into a smile.
It was but, just a reflection
of a child’s sunny disposition.

And I comprehend
the sorrow as needless;
for my take away
had been monstrous.
My soul had been enriched with the giggles and tantrums
of these willful children.

I rejoice in the thought
and celebrate with tears
as I reminisce the memoirs
of being a Kindergarten teacher.
