One of Naidu's most reflective poems would be "The Soul's Prayer." The poem is essentially about an exploration about the nature of existence and the presence of divinity. In it, Naidu explores the duality of joy and pain, suffering and happiness, life and death. She presents the child- like inquiry as something that allows for a sense of great analysis, and represents the childish musings as something that represents the greatest of complexity and thought. At the same time, she also presents a face of the divine, who answers such a fervent questioning. In this vein, one can see Naidu's extreme level of skill in assuming the personas of both questioner and answerer.
