Reflecting: Que Sera Sera

Reflecting: Que Sera Sera

I met many of my former students on the social media. A lot of reflections in our chats, as we reminisced the past years. I usually have to make the first move to connect to them whenever I see their pictures appearing on my site. Many are mothers of teenaged children!


“…ah, I remember you. You were so timid those days! Now you are teaching the other nurses! Excellent!’


“… You own two renal dialysis centers? So enterprising!”


“.. you are a CEO of a cancer hospital! I remember you used to be the top few most of the time!”


“you are a full-time house wife and mother? But you used to be very good in your studies!”

So, how are you? Your kids are so big already! How time flies!”


After some time on the chat, one of them said, “… remember the songs you used to make us sing to improve our English? The song…

Que Sera Sera, whatever will be, will be…”

Oh, what a beauty!

Nah, so boring and stupid!

Perception varies!


Oh, so pitiful!

You are more so than he is,

More than you realize!

Such clear reflection in the stillness of water!

In the utter stillness

of water,

almost like a mirror,

the reflection is so clear,

it mimics nature’s beauty!


In the quietude

of one’s mind,

one sees clearly

as ones reflects!
