Vagaries of Youth


At the dawn of youth
we reminisce in the glory of youth

We uphold various notions of life
and we are far removed from the truth

Life seems to be a canvas of dreams
Full of promises..

Believing in the mirage that
World is in our fist

We are ready to take risks
Life appears to be a game of hide & seek

Down the annals of time, the enthusiasm starts dwindling
But we can not fathom this process of ageing

The euphoria of youth begins to end
Years of experience have caused a dent..

Maturity starts settling in
Reality of life dawns in

And then we feel the nostalgia
of years spent wasted

We then become reticent

But the vagaries of Youth
Teach us quite a few life lessons...

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
