Vagaries Of Youth
At the dawn of youth
by Komal Kapoor
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...
