< Poems by Charles Jobson >


A closely guarded secret

Under one roof a divided household,

refraining from acts of community,

bitter and resentful.

 

All the years passing

cannot erase the hurt that lies within,

minds bound by a spirit of hate.

 

What’s needed is a friendly face,

beaming with encouragement and trust,

breaking down walls and building up.

 

Finally the hope is there

that gleaming faith and patience

will win through:

 

a total state of reconciliation,

a chance for all to grow.
