Joy to Despair

A new born baby
Helpless, beautiful
Overflowing love
Pure joy.

A small child
Innocence personified
Adoration and envy
Happiness.

A young boy
Playful and mishievous
Uncontrollable
Restlessness

A young man
Mature and responsible
Rules laid, expectations grown
Hurt and despair.

Tht must be entirely the young man's point of vieew we're reading rite now....
cos to a small child,adulthood is a fantasy about the ability of knowing the unknown!
To an adolescent adulthood is about liberation...and coming of age....
So it is indeed the young man speaking!Maybe ram the old man might remember theses hurt-and-despair-ing days with totall nostalgia...reminiscing about being a big man in smaller shoes!!!

none of these is from the p.o.v of the baby/child/boy/young man. In fact, this is from the p.o.v. of a person who raises the child.

so you mean, from an external pov,hurt and despair are feelings seen only in a young man????

if tht is the case, the person that has raised the child must be a young man himself!!!!!everything is relative isnt it????

pov of external person... hmm then its highly subjective
who doesnt ve disappointments ram...?
a trivial issue like a unkept promise would disappoint a child.. the issue is it appears trivial to us .. but it does matter a lot to the child..
the DESPAIR associated with such things are subjective to the degree of importance we attach to the issue!!!
