The Journey Begins


A little kiss on his tender cheeks – “God bless you, my love”, she said

Next morning, her husband watched as the clothes and  shoes were chosen to match and the bag packed with love. As they were leaving, she rushed back into the house and came back with some sacred ash to smear on their son’s forehead.

Soon, she stood him alongside the other kids at school. The wailing started as she said “Bye”.

“I will see you later”, she promised only to be met with more tears.

“Mummy loves you”, she said, trying to look brave.

 “And, the journey begins”, she declared nervously. It was their son’s first day at school
