Q : Que Sera Sera

April 20, 2015

When I was just a little girl
I asked my mother, what will I be
Will I be pretty, will I be rich
Here’s what she said to me.
Que Sera, Sera,
Whatever will be, will be
The future’s not ours, to see
Que Sera, Sera
What will be, will be.
When I was young, I fell in love
I asked my sweetheart what lies ahead
Will we have rainbows, day after day
Here’s what my sweetheart said.
Que Sera, Sera,
Whatever will be, will be
The future’s not ours, to see
Que Sera, Sera
What will be, will be.
Now I have children of my own
They ask their mother, what will I be
Will I be handsome, will I be rich
I tell them tenderly.
Que Sera, Sera,
Whatever will be, will be

This song. 

If there’s one line that sums up my attitude to most things, it is this one. Most often I’ve worried endlessly about something, only to have things work out just alright in the end. Making me wonder if all that worry was worth it. I’ve figured that many a times, things are beyond your control, and you can only do what you can, and then let things take their course. 

I don’t know whether to call it riding on luck or the wisdom that the serenity prayer talks about, but more often than not, going with the flow is my style. Like this A-Z challenge. I figured I’d get started and see how it goes. And look, we’re at Q! Now of course, I have very vague ideas for R and S, and absolutely none for the letters that follow. Hey but half the fun’s in sitting and racking your brains half an hour before bedtime. Que sera, sera. 

Each night as we near 10pm,
A strange dread begins to take over me
Q, what words behind with Q?
Why did I even sign up?
Here’s what I tell myself 
Most days you’ve half-assedly been winging it
And so you will get to Z!
Que Sera, sera.
Whatever will be, will be
The future’s not ours, to see
Que Sera, Sera
I still have 10 more letters to go
I ask myself what’ll become of U
And why aren’t we already done with T
Why the letters are so many
Here’s what I tell myself 
Whatever will be, will be
The future’s not ours, to see
Que Sera, Sera
