Being Bitter

He is the faithful one
Who remained

Slaving all his life
For no return

Nothing to show
No joy and no love

Being bitter comes

Anger at the stray

For turning up

Having had all pleasure
And no labour

The Father being
So open
Mother so forgiving

Love not being able
To afford anything
But the joy of redemption

Waiting long and patient
To retrieve the child

From the labour
Of being lost

From the labour
Of mistaken fidelity

That does not know

That all is gift
