Journal: Serious and Trivial is a glimpse into the mind of a literature student. The mind is a witness to the world around. Random impressions and associations felt, shaped and moulded, watched, recorded in a beginner's mind. It may contain bits of poetry, book reviews, experiences of daily life and the progress of the writing style. Carpe Diem, Seize the Day!

Recompense

For every word of harshness that you hear,
There is equally a word of love somewhere.
For the darkest hours of the wakeful night,
At the end of which is a beautiful dawn.

For the loss of innocence of childhood,
There is the growing maturity of years.
For the loss of a life near river green,
There is lot more sunshine to equal.

For the trenches that this life fell into
There are the new scales that it climbs.
For the years lost in search of dreams,
There are these words pn a virtual page.

Which brings in daily, strange comfort,
For every friend lost, that of strangers.
