The Child

With curious eyes, we survey you
Desperately trying to see the conceal potential
The actuary
The cardiologist
The Judge
The pilot

With pleading eyes, we beseech you
Desperately trying to spare you future mishaps
Disappointment
Embarrassment
Shame
regrets

With caring eyes, we comfort you
Desperately trying to see if you have learnt your lesson
Compassion
Embrace
Forgiveness
Encouragement

With accepting eyes, we discover that YOU
are a bi-product of US!
