Hope for the Best

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

I thought of the boys who were restless
And playful and labelled “naughty”,
But became mesmerized by the sound of their recorded voices
And started getting creative
In ways I did not imagine they knew.
I selected them for the showcase
I saw their eyes light up
I hope I made a difference.

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I thought of the girl who sits quietly

But approached me after school

And asked questions of curiosity

Questions I did not imagine she could think of.
I told her we study history,
so that we can understand humans better,
and hence learn about ourselves.
I saw her eyes light up
I hope I made a difference.
When all is said and done
When fatigue and unappreciation makes you wonder if you are even doing the right thing to begin with.
Only hope remains.
